Vase with Mi'kmaq Design
Vase with hand carved Mi’kmaq design, trimmed with braided sweet grass.
Made in Eskasoni by Oakleaves Native Creations.
How it's Made:
Each piece is stone polished with a river stone until it gets a natural shine. It is then smoked in a traditional firing using fir tips, seaweed and sawdust. When the clay gets warm enough it absorbs the smoke giving each piece a beautiful and unique design.
The piece is then trimmed with braided sweetgrass, an indigenous plant used for prayer and purification.
TIP: Dampen the sweetgrass to renew the sweet aroma.
