San Marcos Tlapazola
The color of this pottery comes from the materials themselves, red soil found in the mountains near San Marcos, blended with sand and water to create a prestine finish softened with leather scraps.
San Bartolo Coyotepec
The origins of barro negro pottery extend over centuries, with examples of it found at archeological sites, fashioned mostly into jars and other utilitarian items. The color of barro negro is due to the properties of the clay, and is not colored. The pieces are then fired in unground pits or above ground kilns, using wood fires that heat the objects to between 700 and 800 °C.
