Chamba pottery is a true signature of our country. It is made from a local black clay found and produced in a single small town called La Chamba, in the central region of Colombia, where just a few artisan families still practice the art of firing the clay to high temperatures that will determine its color (black or red), and then polish with an agate stone.
The geometric shapes of our Chamba pieces emerge from an attempt to create a deconstruction of our traditional “Poporo” – a celebratory vase – and reinterpreting its geometry. We have each piece fired and polished separately, and then as a finish we added brass hardware to fasten the final pottery vases.
Since the design is modular and customizable, it provides the customer an opportunity to personalize the geometric design of the final product, making it their own.
