A calavera or "skull" wears floral motifs in time for Day of the Dead. Working in the time-honored barro negro or black pottery tradition of Oaxaca, Anakarem and her family create this splendid figurine. The fired clay is burnished to a sheen with a piece of quartz or obsidian.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
"I thought it would be the best, and it was"
Been looking for a black pottery skull like this one, I've seen a few in person but was not impressed. I've always been impressed with stuff from Novica, so I gave this a shot. Glad I did. Big winner.
