- MATERIAL TYPE: Barro Negro – Barro Negro (“black ceramic” or “black pottery”) is made from natural clay originating in the lands of Oaxaca, Mexico. The clay is collected and any impurities are removed using traditional methods. The clay is kneaded until it is soft and malleable, perfect for creating pottery. This particular type of black ceramic is unique in that the clay has been polished with quartz and then fired at a lower temperature so that the pottery pieces emerge shiny and black.
- MATERIAL ORIGIN: Oaxaca, Mexico - our high quality barro negro is sourced in the hills of Oaxaca, Mexico, and was traditionally used by the Zapotecs and Mixtecs people. The origins of barro negro date back centuries and remnants of this type of pottery are still uncovered in archaeological sites. The innovative design and technique used to create the shiny black sheen unique to these pieces is attributed to a renowned ceramist of Oaxaca, Doña Rosa Real, who developed the technique in the 1950s.
