The Story:

Colectivo 1050 is a cooperative of potters from Oaxaca, Puebla and Chiapas in México. They offer simple and elegant hand crafted clay products, which combine the wisdom of tradition and the dynamism of innovation. The colors of 1050° are the colors of their land, of its rich geography of mountains and hillsides, its flavors, smells and textures. They are part of Innovando la Tradición, a social design, fair trade, and cultural development project.

The Artists:

Niece and aunt, Macrina and Alberta carry on the tradition of utilitarian burnished terracotta pottery that has existed in their family and community for many centuries. In their traditional farming pueblo, they have drawn upon pre-Colombian methods, while also introducing new forms and improved quality. Alberta and Macrina create pots for cooking, large bowls, platters for cooking tortillas, cups and saucers, plates and other items. Flecks of mica in these red-toned pieces give the lovely appearance of gold.

The Piece:

Discover the pleasure of cooking with red clay, a material that transmits the heat in a homogenous way. The heat is conserved, giving the food a better flavor. Its sophisticated design, derived from traditional round pots, was changed and matured with time and contributions from the artisans and designers who incorporated handles, lids and vents.
