Striking and unique black clay serving trays handcrafted in Oaxaca, México featuring a pre-hispanic design. Available in two sizes: shallow and deep. The shallow (flat) tray works well as a serving platter or as a decorative tray for layering key pieces. The deep tray can handle pastas, roasted veggies, sliced steak, and whatever else you can imagine (with a tall enough rim to catch those juices). Use these beautiful trays to serve breakfast-in-bed, or as a centerpiece on your coffee table. These conversation starters are true works of art, as gorgeous as they are versatile.
A style of pottery unique to Oaxaca, barro negro is distinguished by its color and silvery finish. It's origins date back centuries and the color is derived not from dye or glaze but from the use of special, locally-sourced clay. Every piece is hand-polished which results in its sultry sheen.
Designed and produced in San Bartolo de Coyotepec, a community in Oaxaca with a long history of producing barro negro pottery. All clay is locally sourced from the hills of the region and handmade (no pottery wheels are used).
Please note these trays are made individually by hand, without the use of a mould. Each piece will vary slightly in size and shape. We believe the unique, one-of-a-kind nature of handmade items is part of their allure, and we hope you agree.
