Story

The gray-metallic finish of these elegant bowls is an indicator that they have been fired at an extremely high temperature, making them extra-durable and perfect for holding liquids. Pairs beautifully with our Onyx Dinnerware. Each piece is unique and completely hand-thrown in a fair trade environment. 

San Bartolo Coyotepec is one of the most recognized pottery communities in Oaxaca, Mexico and is known for its use of this unique black clay. Each piece is unique and truly handcrafted from start to finish using techniques that date back to pre-Hispanic times.

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.
