Geometric Luminary - Cream
From Women of the Cloud Forest:
"These unique luminaries are handcrafted by our talented artisan partner, Duilio Jimenez, in Nicaragua. They are made out of local clay, turned on a kick-wheel, sun-dried, hand-painted, and finally fired in a bee-hived shaped wood kiln. The process is amazing and the final product will surely become a family treasure."
