A family makes these beautiful pieces 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 pieces are produced in a black and rust color.
