Red Clay Comal - Various Sizes


The traditional comal, created for hand made tortillas above the open fire, but also good as a serving plate. Due to the round, convex bottom with no base, it may not be the best dinner plate. Made from groovy, red clay and marked with random flame spots, adding character. Still showing the line marks of the artisan's work with the quartz stone. Lead free, unglazed. Thanks to the amazing, random pattern of the quartz polish lines and the flame marks, no two pieces are the same. 

The rough beauty of the San Marcos pottery transcends its humble origins. It is usually women that work with the clay, and these plates are no exception.
