This mug is an example of the tradition of "splashed" ceramics, a technique that is unique and distinctive from the Mixteca Alta.
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.
**Mugs are handmade which makes each unique.
4"Diam x 3.5"T (6" Wide including handle)
