Details

A mischievous Costa Rican monkey cavorts against a background of warm orange in this decorative bowl. Handcrafted by Ilsa Chavarria, the decorative Chorotega bowl is bordered with a band of geometric motifs in black and orange.

Chorotega pottery is completely handmade with traditional techniques passed down through the generations for 3,000 years. It is one of the last surviving cultural elements of the Chorotega people indigenous to the Guanacaste region and Nicoya Peninsula. Chorotega pottery is made from local clay mixed with a very fine freshwater sand. It is shaped on hand-operated pottery wheels and polished for a smooth texture and luster. Designs are etched by hand and the pieces are painted with natural pigments made from pulverized colored rocks mixed with water, then fired in traditional wood-burning brick kilns. The result is a beautiful, earthen pottery unique to this region.

"toucan wall art"

I love this ceramic piece of art. I have on my wall, and it is beautiful. Well worth the price. I love toucan birds, someday would love to see real ones in Brazil, but this will do in the mean time.
