Extra tall teardrop-shaped clay vase handmade in the Pai Pai community of Baja, Mexico. The black marbled markings are natural burn marks from the ground-firing process. This striking vase is sure to be a conversation starter. Suitable for dry stems or as a stand-alone decorative vase. Designed and handmade by Daria Mariscal in a remote town of northern Baja, Mexico. Daria harvests and processes local clay and shapes each vase by hand before burnishing, sun drying and ground firing to finish. This pottery technique has been practiced by generations of Pai Pai members, an indigenous community in Baja pre-dating the Spanish settlement with currently less than 200 people. Due to the handmade nature of the pieces, each one will vary slightly in size, shape, and appearance.
