Description

A small footed vessel made of terracotta-hued Baja clay, marked by rich and earthy tones and an organic shape. The open pit firing process yields unique marbled markings, and no two pieces are the same. Use decoratively as a stand-alone piece or to hold dry stems, burn incense or display jewelry.

The markings on each vessel will vary.

Story

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.

Stunning as a stand-alone piece, yet highly versatile with nearly endless functionality. Use for burning incense cones or sage sticks; as a candle holder; for displaying jewelry; as a salt or spice dish; to hold soap ...
