Crafted of clay and painted by hand, this enchanting eclipse is covered with flowers, leaves and stars. Eufrosia Pantaleon uses the colors of marigolds that flourish in autumn, used as offerings on the Day of the Dead.
"We belong to a Nahuatl community where there's a lot of poverty, so I've had to go beyond our village seeking to place my crafts so I can provide for the family."
"I was born and raised in a small village in the state of Guerrero, and I learned at a very young age how to paint on ceramic. My father taught me, and I can still remember the very first piece I painted – it was a lizard. Unfortunately we didn't keep it as my parents had to sell it. That was in the 1990’s and I’ve never stopped since.
"Due to our family's financial situation I was only able to go to primary school. Painting and decorating ceramic not only represents a way to make a living, but to me it's an art form that allows me to express my feelings and capture the beauty of nature.
"I've shared all my life with my wonderful family, but I’ve taken over the reins since father passed away a few years ago.
"We belong to a Nahuatl community, where there's a lot of poverty, so I've had to go beyond our village seeking to place my crafts so I can provide for the family. It makes me very happy to be able to show people what I can do!
"Everything you see I painted by hand, and I'd like you to know that everything I make carries a piece of my heart."

Pleased with this purchase also, but identical mask is done is soooo many designs, yet still the same mask
I received the wall hanging ""Blossoming Eclipse"" today. It's beautiful. The fine detail of the painting is amazing, the craftsmanship is wonderful. The place I picked out for it is high on the wall, but I think I'm going to have to take it down once in a while, to admire the detailed work up close.
