Marcella Yepa Wedding Vase
Part of Pueblo life for centuries, wedding vases—like this graceful one-of-a-kind Marcella Yepa Wedding Vase—are considered sacred among tribal members. At once traditional and contemporary, Marcella Yepa of the Jemez Pueblo employs traditional hand-coiling, pinching, and carving techniques to shape the special clays she unearths into this stunning vase. The dramatic swirls and beautiful shape are characteristic of her style. A micaceous slip adds subtle sparkle. Fired outdoors over cedar chips. Handcrafted in New Mexico.
