Llamitas Siluetas Trio

Each sculptural vessel is one-of-a-kind, hand-built from clay using the traditional techniques of pinching, coiling and paddling. Each piece is burnished with a small river stone several times during the drying process, in order to achieve a particular tactile surface. Once dry, the piece then undergoes two firings, depending on the desired colour: first a low-temperature gas kiln firing, followed by a traditional open sky firing, using llama and goat dung as fuel.
