Azulina's hand-painted stoneware pottery is made in Colombia, where women artisans paint colorful designs onto each piece by hand, a tradition that began over 100 years ago.
In the hills of Colombia, the ceramic manufacturing and hand-painting tradition began in the late 1800s when quartz and feldspar were discovered, a mineral combination ideal for making pottery and ceramics. Since then ceramic manufacturing has developed into a booming industry.
Flowers found on the surrounding hillsides inspire the patterns: roses, hydrangeas, orchids, carnations, and sun flowers just to name a few. In fact, flowers make the region famous worldwide, as celebrated annually by Medellín’s flower festival called Feria de las Flores.
The passion for advancement is so refreshingly alive and well, true to everything we at Azulina cherish about Colombia.
