Story Behind Flower Vase, Black Clay

Coutume sourced this beautiful piece from Zapotec artisans of San Bartolo Coyotepec, in the Oaxaca state in Mexico.

The artisans fire the clay in a semi-underground oven for around 8 hours at 800 degrees (C°), using an oxygen-reduction technique. The smoke creates this black and silver, slightly iridescent color on the surface. The pieces feel like metal in hand.

Historically, this thin clay was used to transport liquids. Today, these pieces are designed to be aesthetic, or decorative.
