Sold out
$498.00

Description

A large vintage pot that embodies the primitive indigenous artisan culture from which it was originally created over 100 years ago. Covered largely in a deep gun smoke blue like an overcast sky that is about to produce rain. This transitions into a foggy white and shades of terracotta. The finish is smooth to suave similar to chalk board. The color is 100% natural, via decades of rain, oxidization, and exposure to elements. Hand-thrown from terracotta clay, this particular planter or pot has a tribal-style ring etched towards the top, with a fluted neck. Discovered and reimagined to be an authentic planter in your home. This oversized vintage jug was originally handmade to distill and transport agave nectar.

Artisan Story

Discovered and reimagined to be an authentic planter or vessel of cultural art in your sanctuary.

This Vintage Vessel was originally known as a Tínaja Tee-nah-hah. Traditionally used by the indigenous people central and southern Mexico to hold and distill a fermented alcoholic beverage, Pulque, made from the sap of the plant of the agave.

The solid steel stand was custom handmade just for this vintage terracotta vessel. We source and curate individual vintage terracotta pots, vessels, and sculptures from remote regions of Mexico. These wholly unique vintage pieces feature subtle deteriorations and color variations from decades of exposure to the elements.
