The story behind the product

These beautiful pieces are made by a family of artisans in Pueblo Nuevo, Oaxaca, Mexico.

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

The artisans add little legs or arms to give life to animalistic objects. The pieces are produced in a black and rust color.
