Produced in San Bartolo Coyotepec, a community in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico with a long history of producing barro negro pottery. All clay is locally sourced from the hills of the region and shaped by hand without the use of pottery wheels. The black clay, known as "barro negro," is a unique and revered material prized for its distinctive sheen and ability to be intricately shaped, creating exquisite pottery that reflects the region's rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship.
Black clay is a style of pottery unique to Oaxaca (a region of southern Mexico), and 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 with a smooth stone which results in its sultry sheen.
Dishwasher safe, however to best preserve the integrity of the pieces we recommend hand washing. Ensure the plates are fully dry before storing.
