Mexican White on Brown Flower Vase, Huancito

$ 78.00

These handmade burnished Mexican flower vases are from Huancito, Michoacán. We offer these beautifully shaped flower vases in a medium size. They are made in the usual way, with clay taken from the surrounding country side, (and when I say taken I mean they excavate it with picks, shovels, machetes and shovels) dried, crushed with stones, cleaned, then moistened and sealed in plastic, kneaded to remove lumps and bubbles. And then it is ready to make into flat "pancakes" to form the vases. They are not fired but allowed to dry and when fully dry, they are covered with a pigment, then rubbed or polished to give the lovely burnished effect. Then they are painted with a cat hair brush. And they are beautiful.

2 available, let us know in the notes if you have a preference.

Ceramics will be packed, shipped and insured by either UPS or FedEx, to increase the likelihood that they will arrive safely. If you should need to make an insurance claim because of broken pieces, you will do it through the carrier that delivered your package, not Zinnia Folk Arts.
