Ceramics in Mexico date back thousands of years before the Pre-Columbian period, when ceramic arts and pottery crafts developed with the first advanced civilizations and cultures of Mesoamerica. It was that time of human civilization when mankind was more used to stoneware. Ceramics has been the most practiced craft in Mexico, because of the fact that the local people over there use household accessories made out of this earthenware.
The Wedding Vase is an ancient vessel still used in traditional Christian wedding ceremonies. One spout of the vessel represents the husband; the other, the wife. The looped handle represents the unity achieved with marriage. The space created within the loop represents the couples’ own circle of life. The wedding vase is a treasured and sacred tradition among many people. These vases are not only symbolic in the ceremony performed just prior to the wedding itself, but also in the shape and construction of the vessel.
