Cultivo de naforas antiguas en el fondo del mar

1.- The selection and preparation in terracotta of the models is done after careful study of different forms and uses that were used in the various ancient cultures of the Mediterranean. The different models recreate exactly ancient amphorae.

2.- After drying and firing, the amphorae are submerged in the sea for long periods ranging around of 18 months to 2 years depending on the case. In these years, and thanks to a recirculation system of plankton, the amphorae rapidly fed up with marine life like shells, small mollusks, algae, corals and sponges.

3.- During the time in which the pieces are submerged in the sea, a manual maintenance on the seabed is necessary in which they are one after the other moved in different cosystems that are prepared for each, to fill up each with life. The varied colonization of the surface makes each piece unique and unrepeatable.

4.- After thoroughly collect the seabed, for a certain time the pieces are exposed to the sun and air dried, with the aim that the marine life, which adhered to the ceramic, are drying and fossilized. The result is a unique amphora, which reflects the passage of time by thousands of years on the bottom of the sea.
