With a beautifully worn, glossy finish, this petite orangeware bowl is a wonderful example of Maya pottery. The delicate bowl is etched with a geometric patterns and coated in a layer of clay slip for a light orange finish. Exposure to combusted materials during firing has resulted in subtle red-orange clouding on the surface, and centuries of use have speckled the vessel with imperfections. With balanced proportions and thin walls, this bowl is an exquisite display of Pre-Columbian artistry.

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.”
