Each completely unique, 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 the bowls are removed  out of the oven, at a temperature close to 900°C. The artisan then applies an ink made from cactus and oak bark.

This bowl was developed while searching for new markets for the ancient traditional pottery of Tonaltepec which was rapidly declining. 

Approximately 8.5" x 5"
