Oaxaca Red Clay Pottery Mujeres Del Barro Rojo made by the Zapotec women.

A contemporary style of red clay, or barro rojo, handcrafted by a cooperative of women in San Marcos, Tlapazola, Oaxaca. Every piece is shaped by hand, and finished with a red clay slip which creates a uniquely textural finish.

You'll find these serving bowls useful for everything - pasta, salad, grain bowls and more. They are even oven safe! Buy individually or bundle it and save with a nested set. Beautiful and durable for everyday use.

The Mujeres collective was founded by Macrina Mateo and the tradition of pottery making in her family spans 20 generations. Today, Macrina is world known and was invited to show her art at New York's Museum of Modern Art and featured in Vogue.

The intense red color is achieved by combining red and yellow clay that the women mine in the hillside. The women make the pieces by hand without the use of molds or a pottery wheel. It takes them about 10 days to finish each piece.
