Oaxacan Multi Terra Tiny Plate - Pair
Made in Tonaltepec, by the Ortíz Cortés family in a community in the Mixteca Alta region of Oaxaca. These inhabitants have kept their ancient ceramic tradition alive for centuries. These pottery pieces are among the few in the world that use organic plant pigments to decorate. The dark brown colour of the stain is achieved when a craftswoman applies an ink made from prickly pear and oak bark after taking them out of the 900°C oven.
Treat your clay pieces lovingly and with care, they are living objects which will grow old with you. Hand wash in warm water. Not dishwasher or microwave safe. Do not leave plate full of water for more than three days, it may soften and break.
