This beautifully handmade clay figure is made in San Marcos Tlapazola by the collective "Mujeres del Barro Rojo". This delicate piece should be washed by hand.

 4.5” x 5.75” x 6.5” 

The Zapotec women who create these pieces believe in the power of clay and its ability to listen and transform. They start with digging out soil and carrying it on their backs back to their studio. This red soil is then mixed with water and sand to make a simple clay that is free-formed without any use of a wheel, then cooked in open air.
