We sourced these pieces from artisans of Santa Maria Atzompa. This family works with techniques that have been handed down for generations.
The artisans develop their own style and natural colors by mixing copal, or tobacco with local clay. On the dark pieces, they use an oxygen-reduction technique to create this black and beige color on the surface of the clay. On the beige pieces, they use a crackling, lead-free glaze.
