The Story:

Mexican “barro negro” black clay is only found in one place in the world, San Bartolo Coyotepec in Oaxaca! Here the clay is excavated from the ground, molded and pit-fired. It’s glossy appearance is achieved from polishing each piece before it dries with a quartz stone before firing. Only 600 families in the world are dedicated to preserving this craft!! All craftsmanship is done by hand using only natural materials.

The Artists:

Fabian Canseco Family: Miguel Fabián Pedro, his wife Esther Canseco Morga and their two children, Omar Fabián Canseco and Adelaida Fabián Canseco, create a wide variety of jugs and vases in black ceramics. Their styles range from purely traditional – primarily those of Miguel and Esther -- to extremely modern, the latter being the creations of Omar who was trained as a graphic designer but decided to return to his family’s ceramic crafts. Omar also creates tiles and other shapes for interior decoration, such as walls, murals, and ceilings. 

The Piece:

These Gorgeous hand sculpted cutout black pottery vases, from the San Bartolo Coyotepec region of Oaxaca, Mexico, are pieces that serve not only as a vase but as a light vessel! The Artisans call these 'Bombillas' or bulbs because the opening in these pieces are a perfect place to put a candle to bring in warm light to any space. Truly versatile! (this item is not waterproof!)

(Dimensions: 4.5" at widest point, 3" opening diameter)

Please note that each 'bulb' contains it's own unique design. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, exact measurements may vary.
