Created with local earth, these slow made bowls feature unique markings from the pit fire process and a lovely neutral hue of pinky peach.
Every custom work is created with local clay, then slowly pit fired over the span of six hours – a process that results in durable, elegant works that are supreme examples of Mexican artistry.
Our award-winning master artisan partner has been producing custom pottery works for over 37 years. While her mother showed her the basics of working with clay, she is self-taught, and divides her time between creating her masterpieces, and teaching art at a local school. These pottery vessels are a crucial element to the local culture in her community and have been made in the region for thousands of years.
Hand wash, and do not place in the dish washer or microwave. These pieces are food safe, however care should be taken to not place anything greasy inside, as that will stain the surface. As these pieces are natural, unglazed pottery, they forks and knives will also leave marks on the surface. In time, and with use, these plates will develop a lovely patina. We do not consider these marks of time to be flaws, but a beautiful reminder of the process and materials as we gather.
These pieces will also smell like earth when they are washed and be cold to the touch after rinsed. This is normal, given the material.
