Small clay plates handmade in the Pai Pai community of Baja, Mexico. The black markings are a result of the ground-firing process, making each plate entirely unique. We love these for storing and displaying jewelry, soap, or for serving small appetizers.
This type of pottery is designed and handmade by Daria Mariscal in a remote town in northern Baja. Daria harvests and hand-processes the local clay and ground-fires each piece, as generations of her female ancestors have before her. She is one of less than 200 members of the Pai Pai group, an indigenous community in Baja pre-dating the Spanish settlement. Daria speaks Pai Pai and Spanish.
Due to the handmade nature of the pieces, each plate will vary slightly in size, shape, and appearance.
