Details

Horizontal stripes of rich color adorn this outstanding decorative ceramic vase from Mario Cano; the Central American artisan handcrafts the vessel using traditional methods thousands of years old. Etched by hand onto the exterior of the terracotta vase is an arrangement of large ovals filled with rhombuses and diamonds. Designs that included geometric forms have been part of the pottery tradition of this Nicaraguan region since pre-Hispanic times. "I want to transmit this knowledge to creative and innovative people in my community who are excited about Nicaraguan ceramics," declares Mario. "My dream is for this ancestral art to be seen and known." The blue, green, black, and yellow hues of the stripes are created with cobalt oxide and colorful ground stones.
