Terracotta

Terracotta Artisan About the Artisan

This terracotta product was made from riverbed clay of the Chenautla area of Guatemala. Each piece is hand sculpted, dried in the sun, painted with a red clay slip, polished and then fired. The firing process involves placing the objects on a grate above a pine bark fire and then covered with grass for 2-3 hours. The occasional black spot can sometimes be found and is tribute to this ancient firing process. It is not an imperfection but a natural part of the firing process caused by the pine and adds to the uniqueness of each piece.
