Mixteca Fruit Bowl
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 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.
