This piece is part of our sample sale due to minor imperfections (a crack on the reverse side), as shown in the last photo.
A "matrimonio" (marriage) shaped clay vase handmade in the Pai Pai community of Baja, México. This style of vase is traditionally gifted to couples at their wedding in Pai Pai culture. The shape is meant to signify the union of two people. Featuring unique, marbled black markings from the ground-firing process. Intended for use with dry stems or as decorative conversation-starters.
Each vase is designed and handmade by Daria Mariscal in a remote town of northern Baja, México. Daria harvests and processes local clay, and shapes each vase by hand before burnishing, sun drying, and ground firing to finish. This pottery technique has been practiced by generations of Pai Pai members, an indigenous community in Baja pre-dating the Spanish settlement with currently less than 200 people. Daria speaks Pai Pai and Spanish.
Due to the handmade nature of the pieces, each one will vary slightly in size, shape, and appearance.
