The cutouts on this lovely round, near spherical vase evoke an image stars in the night sky. Anakarem works in the time-honored black pottery tradition of Oaxaca, with techniques learned from her father. The fired clay is burnished to a sheen with a piece of quartz or obsidian and fired in a wood-burning kiln, which transforms the clay and gives it a lustrous black color. The vase has a traditionally rounded bottom and cannot stand erect without the woven palm leaf ring to serve as a base.
