Description

Varying from the smallest to the largest size, this round vase stands beautifully on its own or combined with other sizes. The vase is handmade in La Chamba (Columbia). For over 300 years, 85% of the people living in this village have been working together to create ceramics, using ancestral techniques that have been passed on from generation to generation.

The artisans source a specific type of clay from the shores of the Rio Magdalena river. Once the clay is molded into its desired form, they are dried in the sun and then polished with precious stones. The objects are then placed in the oven at 800°C. Finally, the artisans start the smoking process using a combination of dried local spices. This final step gives the pottery its iconic black color.

Since the clay vase is not 100% waterproof, we recommend to use it for dry flowers.
