Candelabra

Handcrafted Pottery

Earthenware pottery is the most common type of Mexican folk art. First made here around 4500 years ago, today it is a melding of the newer, Spanish techniques of glazing and firing with the ancient Indian shapes, colors and patterns. We feature the Barro Policromado from Izucar de Matamoros, especially the renowned designs of the Castillo family. The family makes our multi-colored Menorah candelabras, too. Recently, we have expanded our selection to also include the terra cotta nativity figurines from Naples, Italy. They are another handcrafted pottery tradition that goes back several centuries.

This category of Mexican polychrome pottery features inspiring candelabra that hold several candles. These include traditional Trees of Life, and Adam & Eve designs. Long sought-after by collectors of folk art, these figures are made entirely by hand. The potter forms the trunks and branches and attaches them to each other with wire, around which he then wraps the clay. After firing the frame it in a wood-burning oven, the potter applies a base coat primer of white paint. Next, with a steady hand, he paints the fine, multicolor decorative motifs using durable acrylic paints. A final coat of shiny varnish or matte acrylic spray preserves the colors for many years to come.
