Story

Featuring a generous, deep shape, use this rustic pot to cook your favourite stews, soups and sides. The thermal qualities of red clay mean that these unique plates can be directly exposed to extremely high temperatures, making them durable and stylish. Mix and match with our other hand-made clay dinnerware to create your dream table setting.

In San Marcos Tlapazola, a rural Zapotec village outside of Oaxaca City, there are roughly 300 potters—all of them women. For 20 generations, the village has specialized in creating cookware from the unique red clay that is found in the area, and the process has remained unchanged for generations.

The Potters from Oaxaca

Our Mexican pottery pieces are objects born of fire from a place where there is magic in the mud. We are fortunate to work with a group of diverse Mexican potters located in the state of Oaxaca where artisans from over 70 pottery communities have come to personify the extraordinary cultural and linguistic variety of the land. Together, they are a co-op, working to promote their work as a unified force – and working to create an outstanding collection to bring to the global market.

Each region has its own culture, represented through the local earth that they create their clay with. The black clay comes from the rich, fine soil of San Bartolo Coyotepec, the rustic pieces splattered with prickly pear juice come from Tonaltepec, and the deep red clay pieces hail from San Marcos Tlapazola.

Your piece has been shaped by hand, with the thought and care that comes from generations of understanding the local roots, culture, and traditions. Mexico’s pottery practices date back 3,000 years and each hand-turned object is a piece of history, as well as a piece of art.
