Barro Rojo Milk Jug


2 in stock


This Barro Rojo Milk Jug is made by artisans living in the Oaxacan highlands. The red clay is gathered from the surrounding hills. Bits of wood, stone and corn are used as tools to mould the clay. It then wiped using soft leather dipped in water. Finally it is burnished using a stone and brush to give it a smooth unglazed finish. Finally it is pit fired under corrugated metal with wood, sawdust and cardboard. This technique has been passed down through generations for hundreds of years in this village.
