Handcrafted of ceramic in the traditional style of barro negro, this decorative bowl is the result of skill and imagination. Crafted by Anakarem, i is elaborated with circle and triangle motifs, meticulously incised into the clay. It stands atop a base.

'This is is one of a kind,' the artisan explains. 'It is larger than much our work. My father and I crafted it especially for Mexico's prestigious Premio Nacional de la Ceramica, a nationwide competition.'

This contest is held annually in artisan town of Tlaquepaque as part of the festivities for its patron saint and Anakarem has won prizes for traditional ceramics. First place winners are exhibited in the National Ceramics Museum Pantaleon Panduro, named for a master artisan (1847-1909) who founded a dynasty of ceramic artists.
