Inspired by traditional dolls, Mexican artisan Maria Isabel Cruz Romero creates this piece of ceramic wall art. This circular piece depicts a lovely doll, realized in a variety of colors against a red background. The artisan works in the centuries-old tradition known as the dry rope technique, in which a wax mixture made of magnesium oxide and fat are applied to the outlines of the image or motif prior to glazing. The wax mixture creates a barrier that keeps the different fill colors in the design separate during firing, before burning off to reveal the blackened ceramic beneath. A length of nylon cord on the back provides for easy hanging.
