Mexican Burnished Clay Folk Art Ancient Pre-Hispanic Handmade Vase with Handles

$1,00020% Off


In the heart of the Sierra Norte Mountains in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, the settlers found that this "cold place" gave them a very special gift, clay, with which they could use to create their household goods. One of the most famous artisans of this region is Silvia Martínez Díaz, who keeps this tradition alive and converts objects of common use, that date back to the Pre-Columbian times, into artistic pieces, very representative of her work. Using ancient techniques and materials such as her home-made oven, clay from the region, and her own hands, she is able to create this beautiful pieces which carry the traditions of indigenous settlers in the region.
