Barro bruñido is a process that has been used since pre-Hispanic times to create both functional and decorative pottery works in Mexico. These particular pieces are formed and smoothed by hand, coated with a natural hue derived from river mud, vigorously burnished by hand before the pigment dries, and pit fired over the span of five hours. For the tea lover in your life, pair these spoons with our Bruñido tea cups and strainers for a sustainable, ethically made gift.
Our master artisan partner combines her artistic eye with techniques that she learned from artisans in Puebla to create incredible works of art. Her creative practice simultaneously speaks to Mexican tradition, as well as a minimalist contemporary aesthetic. This particular line of delicately hued peach and cream bruñido works are the result of our direct collaboration. They are made to our specifications, exclusively for our collection, and are a sublime compliment to any space.
