Artesania De Galicia - Ceramic Bowl - Snake (Small)
The Artesania De Galicia brand was formed by the Xunta De Galacia with the goal of promoting a unique image for their craft products, a guarantee of quality and prestige in the added value of the labels “handmade” and “made in Galicia”. The Xunta has long supported these artisanal crafts as a way to keep the people on the land in support of the cultural fabric of the area.
Galicia is an autonomous region of north western Spain. It derives its name from the ancient Celtic tribes that inhabited Western Europe during the Roman Empire and to this day is considered the 7th Celtic nation, after Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Isle of Mann, Brittany and France. The area has a long tradition of handmade crafts and a wide range of artisans still practicing today.
Theirs is an ancient history, and one that is steeped in the earth with the Druid religion still embraced widely in the area. Their connection to the earth is reflected the colours and textures seen in the wonderful ceramics that we are now offering from this region. This collection of ceramics is produced by co-ops of women of the area, each piece is signed by the maker.
These functional and beautiful objects bring enjoyment to the rituals of everyday life.
