Ceramic vases:

Like most of our ceramic products, our vases come from the workshop of Moises Manutupa from Cuzco.

We have been working with Moises since 1998. His ceramic products are still made using traditional technology and fired in wood stoves (no earthenware) and provided with traditional patterns. Because these products are made by hand, each piece is unique. Many pieces are available several times, but each one is slightly different. The patterns and colors differ slightly from each other, as is normal for real handicrafts.

As a rule, the ceramic goods from Peru are not glazed and therefore not waterproof.

Things worth knowing about the Shipibo Indians:

The Shipibo Indians live in the Peruvian Amazon lowlands on the "Rio Ucayali", a source river of the Amazon. The Shipibo people comprise about 28,000 people. They live mainly from agriculture (cassava, maize, bananas and various tubers) as well as from hunting and fishing.

In addition, the Shipibo Indians are a people of artists. They are known for the richly ornamented pottery, clothing and carvings that the Shipibo women manufacture. You work as potters, weavers or fabric painters while your men are out hunting. They even decorate all of your household and utensils with these patterns. These recurring characteristic patterns are called "quené". Many scientists are convinced that there is more to all these patterns than just ornamental advice, as these ornaments also play a very large role in the shamanism of the Shipibo. You are certain that these geometric and graphic structures are the result of Ayahuasca influence and, moreover, represent a kind of writing and medium with the other reality. Ayahuasca shamanism is still cultivated by the Shipibo Indians and is guarded as a valuable legacy of ancient Indian wisdom.

The Shipibo produce man-sized ceramic vessels in which cassava beer is fermented, which must not be missing at any Shipibo festival and is poured in large quantities. The drinking vessels for the cassava beer are also relatively large. The size of these vessels is intended to emphasize the generosity of the Shipibo society that hosts the festival.
