    Story Behind the Art:
    Oscar Rodolfo Mendoza says, 'I love my country and our handicrafts are a reflection of El Salvador. I'm strongly attracted to the Maya culture and pre-Hispanic ceramics. It would be a shame if this tradition were lost, so we teach new artists the ancient techniques. We don't only craft objects that are pretty. They are linked to history and the ancient Maya culture, one of the most important in the history of humanity. Despite the centuries, ours is a culture that is still alive.'

  • Very nice little bowl.

    This bowl came as pictured online, except that in the picture it appears to have a shine or a glaze finish. It does not. It is a hand crafted painted bowl, not glazed. It actually makes it look more authentic this way. I am worried that the paint may wear off eventually with cleaning or fade, if I notice that happening or become more concerned about it I will probably seal it. I certainly would not plan on using it for your keys, change, etc. anything that could scratch it.
