Individually hand made by artisans in Colima, these little vessels are very versatile. The technique is called "Barro bruñido," a pre-Hispanic pottery tradition that involves adding mineral slips to obtain rich colors. Instead of glazing, the clay’s surface is rubbed with a river or quartz stone to seal in the pigment before firing.
This delicate and meticulous work results in surprisingly bright pieces with a clean and timeless design.
Available in four sizes, these sculptural vessels stand ready to hold keys, condiments, or treasure of any kind.
