Inartisan - Advik bottle vase
This special technique is traditionally practiced by the Tangkhul Naga tribes of the Ukhrul district of Manipur, India. The pottery has a rich black texture and is made by crushing weather rock / serpentinite and clay. Every piece is shaped by hand, then polished and etched by skilled artisans with the help of a bamboo blade. The pottery is removed from the kiln before the temperature falls and then covered with leaves known as chilon-na. The smoke of the leaves lends a black shade to the pottery.
These gorgeous handmade pieces are lead free and microwave and dishwasher safe.
A beautiful piece on your table used as a water pitcher or by its own as a decorative item anywhere in your home.
