ABOUT

This beautiful black clay pottery is called Barro Negro and comes from Oaxaca, Mexico. This type of pottery is centuries old dating back to 8th century BC during the Monte Alban period. It was used primarily for utilitarian purposes and had a matte grayish finish which was incredibly strong and could be struck without breakage. Then in the 1950s a potter by the name of Dona Rosa created a process of polishing the black clay prior to firing to give it a black almost metallic sheen. Although this process weakened the pottery making it more easily breakable it opened a whole new outlet for decorative wares and sculptures. Barro Negro pottery is one of the most popular and appreciated pottery in Mexico. This set is comprised of a tray or platter with a fish design etched into its surface, four mugs with a band design of beautiful spirals, and a wooden whisk, which is a piece of art of its own. These are all fabulous examples of the barro negro pottery form Oaxaca, Mexico! And, of the Mexican hot chocolate tradition. You need to make this set yours!
