Made by hand with Mexican clay, these slow made pottery plates 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 plates are both food and oven safe. As they’re unglazed, greasy items may stain the surface. Extended use will result in the marks of time from utensils. This evidence of use are not flaws, but lovely reminders of meals shared.
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.
