Born in a village of pottery makers and descended from artisans, it's no surprise that Nicaraguan Mario Cano has embraced the handicrafts legacy of his ancestors. Says Mario, 'I especially love creating our pre-Hispanic style designs.' Using the traditional black and deep red pigments so often found in ancestral ceramic pieces, Mario handcrafts this round decorative ceramic jar and then meticulously incises a geometric design onto the vessel's surface. A round black and red lid completes the remarkable jar.
