This elegant redware vessel is an exquisite example of Maya ceramics. Finely sculpted with thin walls and a balanced form, In a process known as "fire clouding," the red clay slip coating the vessel has darkened to black from smoke during the firing process. The contrasting fields of red and black evoke the fiery heat of the kiln and provide depth and texture to the smoothed vessel. Thinly etched lines circumvent the vessel, interrupting the organic patterning with subtle linear motion.

“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.”
