Details

This ceramic decorative vase is handcrafted by Chorotega pottery artisan Harry García of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. The vase has a wide bowl that narrows up through the neck for a graceful silhouette. The vase is hand-painted with layers of warm orange stripes and bands of dark brown and red featuring intertwining curves whose etching lets the natural ceramic sand color show through.

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