Product Description & Reviews

This smug-looking cat is hand painted and carved with random openings to allow the glow of candlelight to escape.Some of the world's most distinctive pottery is created in San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua, a small village nestled among volcanos alongside a picturesque lagoon. In a typical village scene, you might see ox carts delivering clay and other materials to artisan workshops. The clay is thrown on a kick wheel to form the shape, then painted using mineral oxides. In the next step, the pieces are carved in the classic sgraffito style using homemade tools, sometimes fashioned from the spokes of a bicycle wheel. Once the carving is finished, the objects are baked in a wood-burning kiln constructed from adobe bricks and then polished for a smooth, finished patina. The final product is an object of authentic beauty, the result of many hours of loving labor at the hands of gifted artisans. Each vase is a singularly unique creation, so some variations should be expected.
