Pieces from Peru

The first two pieces of pottery are from Semanario Pottery in The Sacred Valley.This piece is adorned with silver Inca marks and the plate is unglazed but has the condor incised through the oxide. He is a very well known potter throughout South America and has a website.

This piece is a local tourist puzzle jug. You can pour water in and turn it upside down and nothing comes out.

This is a piece of brightly coloured local weaving that I liked the pattern of as it looked rather traditional in style.
