Details

The Pipil or Nahua was an indigenous community that migrated from Mexico to El Salvador around 1000 AD and coexisted in some regions with the Mayas. Little is known about the influence they had on each other's cultures, but some ceramic vessels and pitchers with polychrome motifs painted over red or white backgrounds have been found. Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza gets inspiration from these ancient pottery techniques to handcraft a ceramic decorative jar whose lid is crowned with a falcon's head and whose body features glyphs painted with acrylic paints and natural dyes obtained from achiote seeds.

"Love rustic"

I love rustic. These are versatile. Maybe cups, maybe planters, or even pen or pencil holders. Thank you and I will look for more of your creations.
