Impress the design junkie on your list with a gift plucked from the arty innovators at Artecnica. This Beads & Pieces Bottle is part of a four-part collection created by Hella Jongerius for Artecnica’s artisan-supporting Design w/Conscience initiative. Artists living in the primary cocoa leaf-growing region of Peru handcrafted each piece, which is embellished with delicate pink beading. The ceramicists’ workmanship shines through the fluid curves of the clay’s black exterior, a color characteristic of traditional Peruvian pottery.
Artecnica’s award-winning design objects have been exhibited at the Cooper-Hewitt, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and many other institutions.
