Fingerprints


Who made this? What was floating through her mind? What do her hands look like? What inspired her design? 

Handcrafted goods give us an irreplaceable link to the past; to tradition; to an individual. The pottery we recently got in the shop are signed by the artists from the Casas Grandes and Mata Ortiz pueblos of Mexico which are very close to one another. These are communities of indigenous peoples that have lived there for centuries. 

All materials and tools originate from supplies that are readily available locally and the process of making this pottery is from the ancient pottery traditions of the region. Amazingly, the pottery is hand-built without using a potter's wheel. You can imagine the talent and patience that goes into creating the perfect and artful shapes of the pots or ollas.
