Created by Oaxacan artisans in San Marcos Tlapazola, this paloma (dove) clay vase is the perfect centerpiece for your dining room table.
About the Artisans:
The women of San Marcos Tlapazola are well-known for creating beautiful designs made from red clay. Twice a year, the women from this community venture off to the hills to extract rocks for their creations. The process involves using a rock on the floor as a base and the delicacy of the artisan's hands to carefully mold each design. The final details are added using piece of maiz and jícara. Lastly, the products are taken to a wood oven where they are baked for 8 hours.
Please Note: Each paloma clay vase is made to order. Orders will be processed and fulfilled by Casa Paz in 5-7 business days once your product is ready. However, due to COVID-19, there may be shipping delays.
