Vestige 09 Contemporary Peruvian Ceramic Vessel in Smoked Terracota Finish



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. Made using a Chulucanas technique that dates back to the Vicus Culture (North coast of Peru 300 BCE), and exploring the line of the Vicus ceremonial water vessels the design showcases a modern twist to the traditional Pre-Columbian style. Hand threw and hand painted using a natural engobe, Vestige 09 is then covered with a free drawing layer of liquid silt using brushes made with meadow vegetation. By placing the pottery in kilns filled with mango leaves, the terracotta pieces transform into a deep-black surface. The contrast of the white and black comes by taking out crust of silt with a wooden Hammer. Limited Edition of 10 pieces.
