Story Behind the Art:
This beautiful pottery is produced in the small village of San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua. This community of artisans is recognized around the world for its creative designs and the technique of etching or carving the surface of the vase to add relief, contrast, and texture. While the pottery often depicts the natural flora and fauna of Central America, styles also include intricate geometric patterns, and reproductions of traditional Pre-Columbian art.
