Oaxaca Red Clay Stemless Mug with Plate

$42.00 Regular price

A contemporary style of red clay, or barro rojo, handcrafted by a cooperative of women in San Marcos, Tlapazola, Oaxaca. Every piece is shaped by hand, and finished with a red clay slip which creates a uniquely textural finish.

We love using these stemless mugs for a cafe au lait in the morning (what is better than wrapping both hands around an extra large latte?). They also double as bowls, great for soup, yogurt or oatmeal ... They hold 16 fl. oz, so you won't run out of space. And they're oven safe.

The women-led cooperative, known worldwide as Mujeres del Barro Rojo (women of the red clay), was founded by Macrina Mateo Martinez. As a teenager, she traveled outside her village (which, as a woman, was frowned upon at the time) to find a wider audience and reach new markets, as well as expand upon the traditions and designs of previous generations. Her knowledge and experience helped the village and the cooperative thrive, and most certainly kept alive the generations-old tradition of making red pottery that continues today.

Working directly with the artisans who design and create these beautiful pieces is the best part of our job. It's a true pleasure to curate our favorite handcrafted pieces and help support the talented artists who dedicate their lives to the craft.
