The story behind the product

Originally from Yojuela, these beautiful pieces are also made by a family in Pueblo Nuevo, Oaxaca, Mexico.

The artisans build the pottery without a wheel, using the coiling technique. To create this vintage look, dark luster, or speckled texture "salpicado", the artisans polish the clay and then spray a natural tannin, extracted from tree bark. This technique called "gruñido" needs two firings to complete. 

The artisans add little legs or arms to give life to animalistic objects. The pieces can be produced in black, or rust color.
