Details

With a nearly spherical bowl and a small, round neck, this decorative vase is a beautiful ivory color with a network of grey lines representing interconnected roots, the wellspring of culture and community. Designed by Alessandra Foletti of Honduras, the vase is handcrafted by local women artisans using the traditional techniques of the Lenca, indigenous people of southwestern Honduras and eastern El Salvador. Prior to firing, the clay is burnished (polished with river rock) multiple times, creating a smooth, shining surface. Areas of the pottery which are to remain the original color of the clay are then covered in a resist, leaving exposed areas to be darkened when the piece is fired.
