Gemma Vase in Tierra
Make a statement - Refined & Raw, an Understated Luxury piece. Inspired by a minimalist style, in an earthy palette and texture. Our ceramic Gemma Vase is influenced by organic shapes and Wabi-Sabi living with its matte porous finish. This pieced was designed as a classic foundation piece for those looking for something ethereal and timeless that would match any style of decor and play well with other vases. The interior of the vase is finished with a glaze for water. Ideal for styling with foliage (our favorite is eucalyptus) or as standalone on top of a stack of coffee table books.
Each vase is hand-thrown and to bring out slight variations. It takes approximately a week from start to finish by seven artisans in their Tonalá, pueblo workshop with traditional Guadalajara techniques. The area is known as the heart of Mexican ceramic heritage.

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.
