Offering a goofy smile, a whimsical green fish swims among the bubbles in this piece of ceramic wall art from Mexico. Maria Isabel Cruz creates this piece of home decor, crafted using the centuries-old dry rope technique, in which a wax mixture made of magnesium oxide and fat are applied to the outlines of the image or motif prior to glazing. The wax mixture creates a barrier that keeps the different fill colors in the design separate during firing, before burning off to reveal the blackened ceramic beneath. A loop of nylon cord on the back provides for easy hanging.
