Mesh and Rhino NURBS versions of a handmade base. Greatly detailed for close ups. What you see is pure geometry, no bumps or displacement. Modeled upon a real model bought during a trip to San Bartolo Coyotepec town in the state of Oaxaca. Oaxaca is a state in which the indigenous groups and many of their pre-hispanic and colonial cultural traditions persist.

The potters of Coyotepec continue to use their traditional method of turning pots without a wheel. The technique uses two concave clay plates, one upside down supporting the other. This method is of pre-hispanic inheritance, the pieces are molded on this device. The entire process to develop a finished piece takes 20 to 30 days and goes from molding to decoration, to slow drying in closed rooms, polishing with a quartz stone and finally to baking where the pieces acquire their notable black color.

The renders you see are generated from the Cinema 4D file. Polygon mesh has a little number of intersecting polygons due to meshing complexities.

Need different mesh resolutions? You can generate them from the Rhino NURBS file. You can download Rhino trial for free from their website. Though, it may take a few hours.
