Estimated Production Time6-7 weeks

About

Studio Altar designed a limited edition of contemporary Peruvian pottery that showcases the line of the Vicus ceremonial water vessels, and the tradition of the north Peruvian pottery. The addition of details comes from the inspiration of the details in the traditional pieces. Once hand-thrown, each piece is polished with a river stone, Vestige 06 central medallion is then covered with a layer of liquid silt, and into a low fire kiln. After the first fire, each design goes individually into a separate filled with dry mango leaves. The smoke of the leaves alters the colour of the clay into a shiny black. The contrast of the terracotta and black comes by taking out crust of silt with a wooden hammer — a testimony of the resilience of the culture of the Area. Limited Edition of 10 pieces
