Chorotega - Pottery

The remnant indigenous Chorotega potters of the Guanacaste/Nicoya region of northwest Costa Rica, since the pre-European contact era until present, continue creating their distinctive oven baked and painted (with natural slips) art pottery. Some of these Indian pottery pieces are re-creations of their ancestors’ archeological objects, while other objects are more contemporary, but always informed by their pre-Columbian aesthetic.
