Handmade from Chulucanas, Peru

Here is my collection of Chulucanas pottery. Chulucanas is a remote town in Peru where these unique handmade ceramics are made by the descendants of the indigenous artist of northern Peru. The revived art form dates back to the Vicus community in 500 B.C. Chulucanas pottery are hand burnished with volcanic rock, decorated with earth colors of naturally-dyed slips, and based on their ancient culture for motifs as old as time.

I love these beautiful handmades and I hope one day, I can go and visit this place.
