Bartola Water Jug

Hand spun and fired in an underground pit, this piece of Barro Negro (black clay) boasts a smooth finish and a mysterious metallic sheen.  

Its elegant, minimalist shape evolved from traditional Mexican kitchenware.  The black color comes out naturally from the clay in Oaxaca, Mexico.  The irregular highlights result from direct contacts with fire or burning ashes.  Each piece is unique. 

Colectivo 1050° products are 100% lead-free.  Some went through furnaces and kilns fueled by recycled oil from local restaurants.
