Chulucanas Pottery, Peru:
Chulucanas pottery were developed by using techniques from pre-Inca times. These unique ceramic pieces are thrown and smoothed totally by hand. A liquid clay slip is placed over the exterior. Liquid clay is used to cover with minerals and herbs those areas or designs that they want to keep intact in color. The areas they want to darken, are exposed. The piece decorated this way enters the smoking oven, where mango leaves have been used. When the ceramics are dry, they go to the wood oven and burn at a temperature of between 700 and 900°C approx. During this reduction burning, the mango leaf used as fuel will generate smoke that will darken the ceramic, and will also produce a resin that, when adhered to the ceramic, will give it the characteristic shine of Chulucanas style. This reduction burn is done 2-3 times depending on the desired dark tone, achieving a wide range of brown tones until reaching solid black.
Our artist Rogger Crisanto began molding small figurines with clay at age of twelve. He grew up seeing Chulucanas pottery made by elderly people and finally he learnt and today his art supports his family and two other employees in Chulucanas, Peru.
