Whether arranged on a wall as a whimsical art installation, or hung from a ribbon on a holiday bough, these charming mermaids – know locally as sirenas – will grace your home with a personality all their own. Every piece is one-of-a-kind, and are pit fired in a traditional handmade kiln for roughly an hour. Our partner noted that she prefers to be creative, rather than making multiples of the same, and with this, these designs vary piece per piece.
Our master artisan partner developed this decorative technique after her heart surgery over a decade ago. To encourage her healing process, her doctor recommended that she not lift the heavy, utilitarian pieces that she had been producing with her family. As she had four young children to raise, she began working on highly stylized smaller pieces like this that now serve as the main creative focus of her entire family of potters.

For best care results, they should be washed and dried by hand – no dishwasher.
The noted price is for a single mermaid. They each feature a textured, raised front, and a flat back, along with a top wire for hanging. Every piece is one-of-a-kind and signed by the artist. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and colours may vary slightly from the featured product image.
