This design evokes a pre-Hispanic ceremonial vessel with its elegant, asymmetrical shape and rich textures. Maria Arauz and her family craft the beautiful piece of terracotta. Incised by hand, parallel lines and geometric motifs reveal the natural color of the clay. "The patterns symbolize the territories ruled by ancient caciques," the artisan explains.
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.
