Decorative vase handcrafted in Baja, Mexico.
The "matrimonio" (marriage) shaped clay vase is traditionally gifted to couples at their wedding in the 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.
Daria Mariscal, a master potter living in the Pai Pai community in Baja Mexico, produces traditional pit-fired pottery with clay she quarries herself from nearby lands. Her designs are functional and ornamental, influenced by forms found in nature. Pai Pai pottery has been made for at least 1,000 years, the pots and pieces being burned on the ground in a kiln of dried yucca and native flora. Daria is a leader in her community, sharing her knowledge and teaching these skills to others. Through her dedication to tradition, young Pai Pai members learn their culture and history, processes that enrich and identify them as Baja Californians.
The unique terracotta color and beautiful marbled effect is unlike any other style of pottery. No two pieces are the same. True art for your home and the ultimate wedding gift for any couple.
