Women of the Red Clay - San Marcos Tlapazola

In the small Zapotec village of San Marcos Tlapazola in Oaxaca, Mexico, women have been making pottery out of red clay gathered from the surrounding mountains for generations. Using their hands and tools such as smooth leather, corn cobs, and deconstructed basketballs as a pottery wheel, the women make traditional kitchen cookcare –comales and cazuelas. The pieces we source from this group are both designed and handmade by them.
