Oaxacan Barro Earthenware
Oaxacan Barro Rojo Small Boat Serving Dish
These unglazed red clay or "barro rojo" pottery are shaped by hand by artisan Doña Valentina of San Marcos Tlapazola in Oaxaca. They are quick fired using the surface firing method, which means that while they are excellent at retaining moisture in food, they are more fragile than pieces fired at a much higher temperature.
Hand wash with soap and water.
