Red Clay Jar with Two Birds
Unique piece: beautiful jar with two birds at each side, made from red Oaxacan clay and marked by random smoke patterns. Lead free, unglazed. Thanks to the handmade nature and the flame marks, no two pieces are the same, or even of the same height, which adds a lot of charm and informality.
The rough beauty of the San Marcos pottery transcends its humble origins. It is usually women that work with the clay, and these jars are no exception.
