No two pieces of these sublime multipurpose ceramic bowls are the same. These works are created using hand-harvested local clay from the Oaxaca valley, sculpted on a simple wheel and refined by hand. The crowing touch is the use of a precise smoking process, along with the quick introduction of organic copal and tobacco leaves to searing hot pottery that is expertly applied after firing in handmade rustic kilns. The result is a stunning multi-tone finish that speaks to the innovative hand of the artisan maker.
Francisco and his family have been producing ceramic works in Southern Mexico for generations. Highly skilled in the art of pottery production, Francisco continuously strives to develop new processes – a creative evolution that spans an enormous body of work from large-scale sculptures to stunning tableware. In addition to creating his pieces by hand, Francisco gathers organic plants and minerals from his property to use in his pieces, which he pit fires in the three handmade kilns that he built on his property.
