Details

This rounded ceramic decorative jar in the shape of a turtle is a beautiful ivory color with a network of grey lines. The top of the turtle's shell is the lid, with a shape that follows the organic curves of the turtle's body. Designed by Alessandra Foletti of Honduras, the ceramic jar is handcrafted by local women artisans using the traditional techniques of the Lenca, indigenous people of southwestern Honduras and eastern El Salvador. Prior to firing, the clay is burnished (polished with river rock) multiple times, creating a smooth, shining surface. Areas of the pottery which are to remain the original color of the clay are then covered in a resist, leaving exposed areas to be darkened when the piece is fired.
