Logo Louis Sicard

Cicada made from kaolin clay and shaped through the casting method.

After being baked at 1040°, it is decorated by hand. The blue and red are achieved through spraying colour oxides: a technique that requires great precision. It is then dipped in a translucent enamel glaze, which varnishes the piece and turns transparent after the piece is baked again at 1000°.

There are three totally manual steps needed to decorate the piece, which makes every one completely unique.

- Height: 23 cm 

- Width: 9.5 cm

- Weight: 320 g.

- Comes with Certificate of Authenticity

- Ref.: PR2PRO01


About Louis Sicard

Back in 1895 in Aubagne, Provence, Louis Sicard (1871–1946) created the first earthenware cicada.
This went on to become Louis Sicard’s iconic piece. For over 120 years now, the cicada has been an attractive decorative object traditionally given as a gift in Provence for luck. Since 1890, the Louis Sicard pottery works has been making earthenware table services, decorative objects and cicadas.
