Ayachucho Alter Vase Vintage 8.25"

The town of Quinua is most known for the talent of the potters.  They are famous for manufacturing pieces of pottery known as “Quinua Ceramics”.  Each of these pieces is designed to display local customs.  Quinua is just 23 miles from the capital city and is the site of the Battle of Ayacucho where the country received its independence when fighting against Spanish troops.

In addition to Quinua Ayacucho pottery, this city is also famous for the high quality of red and cream clay that is used to make the pottery pieces.  Although the forms and techniques are simple, almost child-like, the results are what amaze people.  Many of the pottery pieces are chapels, churches, bulls, and houses.
