The Carita Zapoteca bowl is handmade by Taller Coatlicue, a pottery studio in Santa Maria Atzompa, Oaxaca, Mexico. Atzompa is a Zapotec town that has been a major producer of pottery since the Monte Alban period, over 2,500 years ago.
Ana Maria and her family mold their pieces on a hand-operated wheel. Through adventurous experimentation, the Alarzon Martinez family has innovated in design and firing methods achieving an extraordinary result that is both ancient and modern, traditional and contemporary.
