Face mugs and cups are a Mexican tradition from Oaxaca. This pottery tradition has been carried out for centuries with many different interpretations. These 'painted ladies' as I like to call them are sassy and will make a fun and whimsical addition to your table top and coffee ritual. Made from natural red clay (barro rojo) by cooperative of artisans in and around Oaxaca, Mexico.

Perfectly imperfect, all of these pieces are handmade and hand painted, so the size, shape and color may have slight variations that are a reflection of the artisanal technique. The paint colors also vary slightly from piece to piece.

Any black spots that you may see are due to the prehispanic firing process.

Red clay products are made using traditional methods and are not chemically sealed. Clay is porous and will absorb any liquid that it comes in contact with. To help prevent this, you can soak them in water for a minute or two before using to help seal the pores.

Made in Mexico | Lead-free | Hand wash only in hot water - dish soap is not recommended as the flavor can impart into the clay.

By purchasing this item, you are helping artisan communities in and around Oaxaca to be able to continue making a living through their craft.
