This tiny couple is ready to help you season your meals. Handmade with earth from the local fields in the Oaxaca valley, these two little pigs are built by hand by a group of talented artisan women and pit fired for a delicately rustic finish. Each pig is finished with a small cork on the bottom side, in order to keep your seasonings firmly in place. The pieces are safe for oven, gas range, cooking, food service and are 100% 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 our partner, who learned these incredible creative skills from both her 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 and coconut shells, and the pottery is pit fired for roughly one hour to arrive at the ideal hue.

Hand wash and do not use in the microwave. These pieces are unglazed, so the use of sharp objects may scratch the surface.
