Details: Hand crafted from clay
Sourced from Oaxaca, Mexico
These holders are crafted using a technique known as 'snail' which consists of an intense mixing and kneading process to rid the clay of any air bubbles or impurities. Once ready, the clay is worked into a specific shape using a peddle wheel or simply shaped by hand, and then etched using a wooden instrument. The pieces are then fired at a low temperature known as a 'bisque fire.' After firing they are painted with lead free glaze and returned to the kiln at a much higher temperature to make the pottery more resilient.
Onora's line of burnished black pottery is entirely handcrafted by four different family-run pottery workshops. Your purchase helps contribute to the maintenance of this ancestral craft tradition, as well as improves the lives of Mexican artisans and their families.
