Details

Decorated with leafy and mountainous patterns, this pair of decorative vases is handcrafted from black pottery in the traditional style of Mexico's barro negro ceramics. Anakarem creates a small and a large vase with rounded bottoms, which are displayed atop bases of straw that keep them upright.

"This vase is one of a kind," the artisan explains. "It is larger than much our work. My father and I crafted it especially for Mexico's prestigious Premio Nacional de la Ceramica, a nationwide competition."

This contest is held annually in artisan town of Tlaquepaque as part of the festivities for its patron saint and Anakarem has won prizes for traditional ceramics. First place winners are exhibited in the National Ceramics Museum Pantaleon Panduro, named for a master artisan (1847-1909) who founded a dynasty of ceramic artists.

"For My Mexican Friend"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this for my best friend (her family is from Mexico) for her birthday. I didnt actually see it because it came to me giftwrapped, but it was WELL protected in its box. It was wrapped for dear life. So, if youre concerned about the fragility of it... Im not sure how it could possibly break with how well they packaged it in paper.

"Time to ditch your coffee mug/pencil cup!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

If you re not using a pen/pencil cup as gorgeous as this one, it s time to upgrade! A huge improvement from a coffee mug and still big step up from anything you ll find at your big box office supply store. Wonderfully handcrafted with a graphite-like sheen.

Best Uses

  • Pen/pencil cup, dry vase

"How beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this vase. I am able to put a small set of lights at the bottom and add dried flowers. In the Fall, I look forward to lots of gold and orange to compliment the black vase. It was packed very carefully and arrived much quicker than I anticipated. Thanks so much!
