Description
Reverse-painted glass, introduced to Peru in the 17th century, is now a revered Peruvian art form. The Ortiz Family brings to this craft a unique conflux of influences. Their repetitive geometrical and symmetrical patterns owe their origins to Inca pottery, but their coloration is drawn from the multi-hued blue and gold tiles found in North Africa and Spain. Our glass-topped wooden tray is handcrafted in the family’s workshop in Peru.
  • Glass, plywood

    Love this tray

    Posted by Joanne on Oct 12th 2020

    This is a lovely tray, just as pretty as its picture. Although the simple gold rim sometimes strikes me as a little modern and (forgive me) garish, the tray itself is so functional and beautiful that I got over it. :)
