This Oaxacan clay incense holder is a unique piece of pottery inspired by a design from the Mesoamerica era that was initially used to burn copal, a sacred incense of both Mayans and Aztecs.


When it comes to Atzompa pottery, Rufina is a truly special artisan and her small-batch pieces – from candle holders and stunning clay pots to her unique incense holders – are highly prized.

Rufina's pieces reflect her love of clay and the extent to which it is part of her being. She digs the clay for these pieces with her own hands. She mixes it, shapes it, and fires it – all with the power of her ancestral bonds. Her heart and hands work in tandem to harness the magic in the Oaxacan clay.

Meet the Artisan

Oaxaca, Mexico


Born in Santa Maria Atzompa, Rufina had a solid sense of purpose from birth. Said Rufina, "I knew what I was going to do even before I was born. Artisans are made in the womb." When it comes to Atzompa pottery, she is a truly special artisan and her small-batch pieces are highly prized.

Rufina selflessly works to save pottery centres (and their artisans) from the brink of obsolescence. Change doesn't just happen. It takes someone like Rufina to preserve an ancient tradition – one that would fade into the past without her.
