Chulucana Vases

Each Piece Individually Crafted and Signed by the Artist.

Artisan at WorkGreen PotteryNeither potter's wheels nor molds are used in the making of Chulucana vases. The artisan sits with his bare feet crossed in front of him, soles up, and uses his feet to hold the pottery while his hands shape and mold its form. The finished piece is given a slip coat of color, and burnished with a special polishing stone (considered to be the soul of the artisan). The burnishing gives it a brilliant shine. Then, using a paste of earth and water, designs may or may not be painted on. When the paste mixture is removed after firing, that which was covered retains its initial slip color while all else is turned black by the smoke of the fire.

Our sincere and humble apologies to the artisans of Chulucana. Our photographic efforts fall far short in reproducing the true beauty of the high gloss and deep coloration and shading of their efforts. Each is a true work of beauty!
