Women in the Dogon tribe in Mali found economic independence through their skill with pottery. Everyday objects, like this water vessel, received detailed attention from these craftswomen. The vessel's varied textures come from its utilitarian design. The dimples and bands were engraved to give the drinker a better grip, creating rich, graphic handworn texture. Wear to the rim is expected from regular use over time.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
