Mixteca Bowl | L
HANDMADE IN MEXICO
An impressive, large fruit bowl with a stunning, stained-pigment finish.
Use this bowl as a standout centerpiece to hold fruits or vegetables, or showcase it on a shelf or mantle for the ultimate statement in artisan decor.
These functional pottery pieces are made in Tonaltepec, a community in the Mixteca Alta region of Oaxacaa, whose inhabitants have kept their ancient ceramic tradition alive for centuries.
These pottery pieces are among the few in the world that use organic plant pigments to decorate. The dark brown colour of the stain is achieved when a craftswoman applies ink made from prickly pear and oak bark after taking them out of the 900° C oven.
