Story

We love the unusual shape and surprising finish of these jars made in Tonaltepec, a community in the Mixteca of Oaxaca, 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 color of the stain is achieved when a craftswoman applies an ink made from prickly pear and oak bark after taking them out of the 900°C oven.
