Oaxacan Barro Earthenware

Oaxacan Barro Negro Espresso Cup


This unglazed black clay or "barro negro" vase is shaped by hand by artisans in the collective Colectivo 1050° – a group of designers, artists, and artisans who work by hand to make unique, high-quality products in black and red clay. San Bartolo Coyotepec is a village outside Oaxaca city specializing in black clay pottery.

The pieces 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.
