Up in this sale is a gorgeous geometric polka dot pottery vase. It is from Chulucanas Peru and is signed by the artist Valeriano Paz. It measures approx. 6" high and 5 1/2" across. We are calling it shabby chic condition because we can see light scratches and wear to the vase and one glaze flake. No chips or cracks!
Thousands of years ago, the potters of the Vicus culture in the coastal deserts of Peru were known throughout the land as the finest ceramic artists. Using the clay beneath their feet, the natural symbols around them and a strong religious inspiration to guide them, they fashioned elegantly shaped, subtly painted ceramic pots. Hand burnished with volcanic rock, decorated with earth colors of naturally-dyed slips, and based on their ancient culture for motifs as old as time, Chulucanas pottery is made by the descendants of these indigenous artist of northern Peru. Chulucanas pottery can be considered a true inheritance from the Precolombian art of the Vicus, not only because of its quality but also because its artists have captured the techniques that were developed more than 2,000 years ago in the northern coast of Peru.
The artists search for a message or theme of a piece which guides them as they work on it to completion. This type of art is so natural that you can detect the smell of earth and wood fires on the pieces. To own Chulucanas pottery and art is to own a piece of history of ancient America.
Chulucanas is a town in northern Peru, near the foothills of the Piura highlands and not far from the border with Ecuador. In the 1960s the Moncada and Sosa families of Chulucanas began a serious study of early decorative ceramic methods. They began by making fruit and animal shapes, and later added human figures typical of the local cultural Environment. These included "chicheras", women with children, families, dancers, birds and a variety of animals from the desert. The negative-positive technique was researched and its renewed use has now evolved into a wide variety of shades ranging from light to a dark, almost black ocher. The color is obtained by selecting several fuels such as tender or ripe (fresh or dry) leaves from banana and mango trees. The quantity of fuel placed in the second firing is what provides the variety of shades.
Valeriano Paz Arishendis invokes fantastical images where geometry and symmetry are carefully exalted. He paints them on handcrafted vases as a testimony of the rich artistry that distinguishes the Chulucanas ceramic legacy. The pottery emerges from the kiln hardened and smooth, ready for decoration. In the classic technique, a mixture of sand and ash is used to paint the designs. The ash mixture may be brushed on or applied with a wooden stencil. Modern techniques have replaced the ash mixture with liquid clay slips (called barbotilla), which can be colored more easily. In either case, those portions of a piece that are to be black are not covered, but left bare.
The decorated piece is then placed in a second kiln filled with mango and / or banana leaves, either fresh or dried. The smoke and resin produced by the burning leaves render the unprotected areas a shiny brown to black. The color obtained is a function on the type and quantity of leaves burned in the kiln. A given piece may be smoked more than once, until the desired effect is achieved. This gives the distinctive Chulucanas finish. Estimated shipping weight, (packaged) is 8 oz in a 12 x 10 x 10 box. The Calculator is not always right - if the shipping looks too high email us and we will give you an accurate quote prior to the sale ending. ************ What a great find!

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.
TERMS OF SERVICE
is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.
Treat all of your customers as if they are family.
Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.
BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.
ONE - Who We Deal With
We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.
TWO - Shipping Charges
We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!
THREE - International Shipping
We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.
FOUR - Insurance
's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.
FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted
We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.
SIX - Time Frame To Pay
We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )
SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame
We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.
Finally, EIGHT - Communication
Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
