These clay ornaments are the first products of the brand new clay guild in Jubilee, Haiti. It all begins with clay, sourced in the heart of Haiti. The clay guild brings it in 100 lb dry bags. Then the team reconstitute the clay with water in big steel drum, and presses the wet clay through a screen for further purification. The clay is then left to dry for a day or two. After that, the clay guild works it's genius by kneading the moist clay into shape, firing it, added a glaze, and firing it again! Many hands have touched this great piece coming into your home. Some glaze, some attach beads and twine, others knead. Thoughtfulness is what they bring to you. Hope is what you bring to them. Pick up your fair trade clay ornament today!
