This hand is hand made! with the traditional technique of Tonaltepec. In spite of not having a very specific function, it has been adopted by many in order to hold votives, mezcal cups, individual breads or small desserts. Let us know how you use them!
These pottery pieces are among the few in the world that use vegetable pigments for decoration. The dark brown color of the stains is achieved when, upon pulling them out of the kiln, at a temperature close to 900°C, the artisan applies an ink made from cactus and oak bark.
Size varies, width: 3.5" to 5.5"-ish, height 3.5" to 5.5"-ish
*Each piece is handmade and therefore uniquely awesome.
