Vessels for Orisha & Ancestors

I make clay vessels by hand that are finished by pit-firing. I also work with manufactured ceramic vessel forms, they are decorated with ceramic underglaze colors, or acrylic paint. Lids are made with clay or other materials such as wood, basket fibers, or gourds—they are well-fitted to the vessels. Each vessel is unique, custom made to order, and individually priced.
