Barro Rojo Mini Salt Spoon
The ideal spoon for pairing with our handmade wooden salt cellars or pinch bowls, as well as for serving a small pot of hot chilies, or with a wee jelly dish at tea time. These sweet little spoons are handmade by a master artist with earth from the local agricultural fields in Southern Mexico. They’re pit fired with traditional processes on their property, and are safe for oven and food service, and are also lead-free.
Both utilitarian and traditional art piece, barro rojo pottery can be found in a variety of areas – from outdoor food vendors to elegant restaurant tables. These particular pieces are made custom for our collection by a master artist and her sister, who learned these incredible creative skills from both their mother and grandmother. The pieces are shaped on a simple wheel and also by hand. Texture and polish are added through the use of corn husks, oil cloth, stones, coconut shells, and an intense burnishing process with quartz stones. The pottery is pit fired for roughly one hour to arrive at the ideal hue.
Approximately 6cm long
While these pieces are unglazed, given the nature of the pottery, it is best to hand wash these spoons and do not put them in the microwave. If you use these pieces for greasy items like butter and salad dressing, they will absorb the grease and stain darker.
The price is for a single pottery mini salt spoon. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image.
