CHULUCANAS POTTERY

The technique of artisans today stems from a culture that reached the height of its splendor in 500 B.C.

At only 29 years of age, Santodio Paz Juárez has taken up once more the ancient techniques of the Vicus culture of two thousand years ago, reflecting it in vases zoom imagen and jars bearing different polychrome motifs in high and low reliefTo Related image to the Multimedia Gallery.

This young craftsman comes from a family with a long tradition in pottery and today he is acknowledged, together with Gerásimo Sosa, to be a master of one of the most polished, clearly defined techniques used in the making of the famous pottery of Chulucanas.

Twenty five years ago, this rich tradition in pottery was revived in Chulucanas, a town with a population of 70,000 located in Piura in the north of Peru, close to Vicus hill where the culture of that name flourished. This culture reached its zenith in around 500 A.D., developing pottery of indisputable beauty. The technique of the ancient Tallán inhabitant consistes in using a wood paddle and a stone, beating and smoothing to give the desired shape without benefit of a potter's wheel.

Unlike the pottery made in other regions of this mystical country, Chulucanas ware differs in its excellent finish To Related image to the Multimedia Galleryand in its tones of color that are generally lighter than in other types of pottery.

Also, due to the nature of these handicrafts, production is limited and exclusive.
