Mexican pottery called Barro Negro. It literally means "black pottery". The shiny black pottery does not use coloring agents, but the blackness and brilliance emanating from the soil. This technique was developed in a village called San Bartolo Coyotepec and is still made today. Pottery has a history of about 2,500 years, but it had a matte texture for a while after its origin. But in the 1950s, a woman named Dona Rosa invented the black glow technology. As a result, it has gained explosive popularity and is now a pottery representative of Mexico.

This is a vase for dried flowers purchased at Dona Rosa's workshop in San Bartolo Coyotepec. The combination of Baro Negro and Marigold I saw at the workshop was very beautiful, so I bought it. Of course, it's a simple shape, so I think it's good to leave it as it is as an object. The atmosphere is outstanding just by arranging two.

* If you put liquids in it, water may leak out, so please enjoy only dried flowers. The same guidance is given when purchasing locally.

*One order is one. When purchasing 2, please set the quantity to 2.
