Ground-fired decorative ceramic vase handcrafted in the Pai Pai community of Baja, México. The beautiful black markings are a result of the firing process, making each piece unique. The sculptural shape is inspired by the female form (mujer translates to woman in Spanish).
The ceramic 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.
