Silvery black clay plates handcrafted in Oaxaca, México featuring a flat, rimless design and a marbled, polished finish. The texture and feel of the plates is reminiscent of honed stone. Each plate is a true piece of art.
Available in 3 sizes: dinner plate, salad plates or dessert/appetizer plate. Mix and match to create the perfect set.
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 a matte black sheen.
Every plate is 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 that each plate is made individually without the use of a mould and 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.
