Vicente Hernandez Incense Burner
Vicente Hernandez. Incense Burner. Oaxaca, Mexico. Size: 9 x 3 inches.
Hernandez is originally from Magdalena Jaltepec, in the Mixteca region of the state of Oaxaca. His parents emigrated to the city when he was 3 years old. Vicente started making pottery at the age of nine when he visited a pottery workshop. At the age of 14, Vicente obtained the official title of Turner, which was a rarity since it was unusual for boys of his youth to obtain this title. Vicente founded his first workshop "Greca de Sol" with his family in 1998 and later co-founded the "Tierra Quemada Gallery" in 2003. He has been developing different types of pieces, both traditional and contemporary.
