Vintage Wayana Vase (S)

The smallest of the three vases shown in these photos. 

Sculpted by hand in Lombok, Indonesia, this vase is created from terracotta, one of the world's oldest sculpting materials. The vase is spun on a table by hand and the decorative motif applied using fingers and homemade combs.

The drying process remains as it was 100 years ago: the vase is dried in a low-heat, open-air kiln, using coconut husks as fuel.

Note: As terracotta is not 100% waterproof, these vases are designed for decoration rather than water usage.
