Keepers of the Arts - Central American Ceramic Gifts
I was concerned that a clay item would arrive in pieces. The packing was INCREDIBLE. Very happy with what I ordered and the care that was taken to pack and ship it.
I am blown away by Maria Arauz's ceramic pieces! I have now purchased four of hers. The craftsmanship is tremendous, and the design of each is so unique and expertly executed. I have only recently discovered Nicaraguan ceramics, and love to share them with everyone who comes to my home. This particular piece is my favorite, with its asymmetrical lip, is my favorite. I continually check to see what else she may be making.
Ever since I got to visit Mayan ruins in the early 1980s, I have admired Mayan art. The piece I bought is very beautiful, and I prize it. I very much enjoyed reading about the artist.
"We don't only craft objects that are pretty. They are linked to the history of our country and the ancient Maya culture, one of the most important in the history of humanity."
