Learn more about the Collection

As part of the Xacra collection, the Miño uses a technique that dates back to the first century, during the era of the Romans in Hispania. To create the Xacra collection we partnered with the last artisan alive who still masters this technique, preserving the craft and preventing this art from extinction. The artisan respects the original technique and the same indigenous clays as his ancestors to maintain the characteristic texture and finish.

 

The Miño vase is named after the longest river in the Ribeira Xacra region, from where the technique originates. That river carves the majestic canyons that characterized the region inspiring the piece. Miño, the slimmest piece in the collection, with its vertical walls emulates the steep slopes of the region. When combined with the smaller pieces, it gives height to the collection, re-creating the landscape of the Ribeira Xacra region.
