Large Hand Turned Custom Stoneware Floor Vase by Xochiquetzal

Xochiquetzal Stoneware

This floor vase was custom designed on special commission for Tlalli Designs by Xochiquetzal. The model for this design is a Pre-Columbian vase recently discovered on the site of the present-day Mexican National Palace in Mexico City.  We were so struck by the modernity of the original design that we asked the artisans of Xochiquetzal to reproduce it using their own stoneware technique.  Eight different attempts were made to produce this object, but only two succeeded, one of which resulted in the vase on offer here. 

This vase measures just over 19" in height and 9 1/2" in diameter at the top. It weighs 24 lbs.
