Description

Magen H Gallery

La Borne was a small town, known for centuries as the “Village of Potters.” Because of the village’s geographic location, the land provided potters access to abundant wood, layers of exceptionally fine black anthracite clay, and earth rich in minerals. For centuries, the pottery-making tradition in La Borne flourished, with technical skills and knowledge passed down through families. The local style was traditional, consisting of utilitarian ware and other hand-thrown and sculpted forms embellished by religious and agricultural imagery.

The piece ships from New York, NY, directly from the seller. Shipping and tax (except eligible FL tax) will be charged separately.
