Barro Negro is a special clay from San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca, characterized by its black colour. Each piece is handmade by skilled Mexican artisans. The special clay is just found in this area. The magic behind this material is the polishing process and the firing which requires a lot of experience, sensitiveness and time. Today just a few families produce Barro Negro pieces and secure their living expenses by selling mainly decorated art sculptures and vases. Our aim is to reinvent this extraordinary artisanry in a contemporary way as well as it is our principle to improve the artisans living situation by creating a professional and constant work environment.
