Polvera Gourd – black

Artisan made in Mexico


These lacquered and gilded gourds are each hand made by master artisan Cristobal Santos Diaz in his family run workshop located in the mountainside village of Temalacatzingo, Guerrero. His expertise and attention to detail is impeccable. How are these made? The gourds are grown, dried, carved, cleaned, and then covered with several layers of lacquer made of hand-ground mineral powders and chia seed oil. The interior of each gourd is layered with gold leaf. A stunning little bowl.


Black on the outside, gold leaf on the inside.

Size: 90mm diameter, 70mm diameter at the gold leaf rim, 60mm in height
