Handmade fruit bowl from Oaxaca, Mexico.
Hand made by Francisco Alarzon, Santa Maria Atzompa-Oaxaca- Mexico
Each piece is formed on a hand spun wheel, surface fired in a wood burning kiln and burnished using river stones. The slip ( a wash of fine clay) used on these pieces is very reactive to variations in heat and smoke so Francisco burns resin rich copal wood and tobacco leaves in the fire to give the pieces natural colour variations.
* All of the pieces can vary slightly in dimension and colour making them each one of a kind.
