A beautiful little gem, this ceramic bowl is handmade in a family-run pottery workshop located in the State of Mexico. The clay is firstly kneaded extensively to get rid of air bubbles and impurities. After working the clay on the wheel, the bowl is etched and transferred in the kiln for low-temperature firing. The black lead-free glaze is then added and the piece is fired again at higher temperature. A great versatile piece.
Dimensions: H 6 x D 15.5 cm

About The Designer
ONORA was founded by Maggie Galton, an art historian turned designer from New York and Maria Eladia Hagerman, a Mexican born designer living in Los Angeles.
They were brought together by their shared passion for Mexico’s cultural richness and their belief in applying innovation to Mexico’s rapidly fading artisanal sector with the final goal of preserving this important component of Mexico’s identity.
Together they have formed ONORA – a brand dedicated to the creation of high end, hand crafted textiles and home accessories in collaboration with Mexican artisans.
Each exquisite piece created by ONORA expresses the core principles at the base of the brand: the strong commitment to social impact, the profound respect for tradition and craftsmanship and the spirit of collaboration with artisans.
About The Technique
The clay is firstly kneaded extensively to get rid of air bubbles and impurities. The bowl is then modelled and the delicate decorations are etched, before transferring the piece in the kiln for low-temperature firing. The bowl is finally glazed with lead-free paint and returned to the kiln to be fire at higher temperature.
