These pieces are from the North East of Oaxaca. The indigenous community of 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, atradition 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 cup is 3" in diameter and 4" tall. Coloration will vary, as these are handcrafted and individually unique.
