African Clay Red Black Vase II Tribal Design Black Beads Handcrafted 13" H X 9" W
African tribal vessel, called Red Vase has red undertones on its black brown color. Patches of black tribal designs stand out on this unique work of art that's intricately adorned with black seed beads.
Handcrafted in South Africa the artisans work next to an old farm house in the mountains, where their small empowerment project is located. These former farm workers produce clay pottery using the wax finish of some traditional South African pottery. Although the patina gives it the look of wood; this is clay pottery.
The inspiration for this decorative vase comes from traditional South African symbols and designs unique to the tribal artists who work form this cooperative. There are two of these vessels and the fourth photo above shows them side by side with this listing being the vase on the right. There is a separate listing for each.
