Made by hand with Mexican clay by a master artisan in Southern Mexico, these slow made pottery wine chillers feature unique markings from the pit fire process, and a textured surface in the perfect neutral of peachy blush. Created from natural materials with traditional processes, these vessels retain cold temperatures, can be chilled in the freezer, and may also filled with ice. As they’re made from unglazed clay, they will will filter water, so a protective plate should be placed underneath. These pieces can also double as a flower vase, planter or to use as a holder for utensils in the kitchen.
These pieces are only available periodically in very limited quantities.
Our award-winning master artisan partner has been producing custom pottery works for over 37 years. While her mother showed her the basics of working with clay, she is self-taught, and divides her time between creating her masterpieces, and teaching art at a local school. These pottery works are a crucial element to the local culture in her community and have been made in the region for thousands of years. Every custom work is created with local clay, then slowly pit fired over the span of six hours – a process that results in durable, elegant works that are supreme examples of Mexican artistry. In addition to pottery, this community is also well known for natural dyes, embroidery work and their brass bands.

As they are made from unglazed pottery, they will filter water and should have a protective plate placed underneath, if they’re filled with ice. Our snack plates work well for this purpose.
