Sofia Oval Bud Vase in Tierra

$78.00

Inspired by a minimalist style, each piece is finished in an earthy sand finish. Our ceramic bud vase is influenced by organic shapes and Wabi-Sabi living with its matte porous finish. The versatile piece can be styled with or without florals (the insides are glazed). It looks great paired up alongside her sister, Ana Paula, other ceramics, or as a standalone. Each vase is hand-thrown to bring out slight variations.

It takes approximately a week from start to finish by a group of 7 artisans in their Tonalá, pueblo workshop with traditional Guadalajara techniques. The area is known as the heart of Mexican ceramic heritage.

The Craft

Each piece is hand-throw on a wheel. It takes one week from start to finish. The clay is a custom blend of various powders (native to the region) to create a raw matte exterior and neutral color palette.

The clay is mixed by foot and is then kneaded before throwing each piece by hand. The piece dries in the sun for a couple of days before its stamped, glazed inside and outside and then fired in the kiln for a half a day.
