4" Nabora Appetizer Plate
These beautiful pottery pieces were handcrafted by an indigenous tribe of women across 7 villages in Oaxaca, Mexico, whose inhabitants have kept their ancient ceramic tradition alive for centuries. All of the raw materials used in the making of these pieces come from the hills, mountains and slopes surrounding the places they have lived in for generations. They are also among the few in the world that use organic plant pigments to decorate.An ode to their multi-millennial ceramic making tradition, the splashed aesthetic is a unique technique distinctive of the Mixteca Alta. Made by hand, these ceramic pieces are also among the few in the world that use natural vegetable pigments for decoration. To achieve the dark brown stains, upon pulling the pottery pieces out of the kiln, the artisan applies an ink made from cactus and oak bark. A conversation piece for the dinner table, laden with culture and history.
