Natural Clay Mug with Face 100% Made in San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca.

These beautiful mugs are made with patience in San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca by the same talented artisans who create the world-famous barro negro, or black clay. Each piece is shaped by hand and baked in an underground wood fire of thick black smoke, which gives the pieces their unique special hues.

The expert artisans are masters at shaping the particular and unique faces found in these mugs, inspired by the traditional Zapotec depictions. These beautiful mugs will add personality and character to your spaces and will be the perfect match to your Oaxacan coffee.

  • Made of locally-sourced Barro Negro, or black clay.
  • No dyes are used, the clay acquires its black color from the special mud in Coyotepec and the smoke used when baked.
  • Handmade: Each piece is one of a kind as no molds or potter's wheels are used when making these special mugs.
  • MEASUREMENTS:
    Each mug is approximately 4" in diameter x 4" tall
    Holds approximately 2.25 cups, or 18 fl oz. 
  • CARE:
    Barro Negro is baked at low temperatures, which makes it not microwave or dishwasher safe. Handwash and let it fully dry before next use. 
  • Sold individually.

At Lolo - Mercadito we are committed to acknowledging the nature of each product. With each purchase, you are getting a unique and authentic piece that was handmade with love by artisans from Mexico.
