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 red soil in their village of San Marcos Tlapazola. 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. This creates a remarkable surface using their fingerprints to mold pristine shapes. Their pottery is formed and dried, then fired in an open pit in the yard of their homes.

Approximate size. Due to its handmade nature, size and construction vary. A patina will form with use as the clay surface is porous. Can be share to hold pencils, pens, and paintbrushes.
