The ideal pieces for a dedicated afternoon in the kitchen, these slow made pottery prep bowl sets feature unique markings from the pit fire process, a handmade agave rope for hanging and a textured surface in the perfect neutral of peachy blush. Created from natural materials with traditional processes, these vessels are both food and oven safe. As they’re unglazed, greasy items may stain the surface. These bowls can also be used for serving up side dishes, snacks and other delights.
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.

Hand wash, and do not place in the dish washer or microwave. These pieces are food safe, however care should be taken to not place anything greasy inside or they may stain. As these pieces are unglazed, natural pottery, they will sweat if standing water is placed inside. Forks, knives and other utensils may scratch the surface of these bowls, but this is a normal part of regular use of unglazed Mexican pottery.
The price is for a single set of two prep bowls – one of each size – along with a handmade agave hanging rope. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, markings, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image.
