 Los Mixes Pottery

These pieces are from the North East of Oaxaca. The indigenous community of Los Mixes utilize the natural resources from Oaxaca's Sierra Norte to create pottery native to the region. From collecting the clay to firing their final pieces, their techniques are self taught, a tradition that is passed from one generation to the next.

This collection is brought to Home Ec by ConSentimiento, a platform that promotes and supports Mexican Artisans, traditional handcrafted techniques, and the heritage behind the craft. Founder Leilani Brambila works directly with the artisans in Oaxaca to bring these pieces to San Diego to share with our community. 

Each piece is appx 4" tall and 6" wide at the ears.

Cure Me
Before using your new handmade piece for the first time: 
1. Fill a container with room temperature water
2. Mix 1/2 to 1 cup salt into the water
3. Submerge the piece completely into the salt water and let soak for 24 hours.
4. After 24hrs take out the piece and dry it, never store wet. 
**It is recommended to repeat the process again if the piece has been stored for a while (+2 months) before reusing it**
