El Plato Azul | Dish
The technique and ceramic tradition of Santa Maria Atzompa, is one that not only produces beautifully handmade pieces, but one that is consistently trying to get preserved by the families of artisans who have carried on those methods for generations. The general technique begins with mining clays of all types in the mountains within the region. Next, the pieces are crafted by hand and set out in the sun to dry before their first kiln firing that utilizes alternative energy methods such as burnt cooking oil. Lastly, the pieces are painted with enamel glaze and re-fired to perfection.
This lovely shallow dish features a dark blue glazed interior that creates a unique contrast with its unglazed exterior. Use it for serving your favorite meals to your guests or place it on your kitchen counter as a fruit bowl. You can even place some potpourri dried flowers inside for a more fragrant piece of home decor.
