Day of the Dead Pottery

Handcrafted Pottery

Earthenware pottery is the most common type of Mexican folk art. First made here around 4500 years ago, today it is a melding of the newer, Spanish techniques of glazing and firing with the ancient Indian shapes, colors and patterns. We feature the Barro Policromado from Izucar de Matamoros, especially the renowned designs of the Castillo family. The family makes our multi-colored Menorah candelabras, too. Recently, we have expanded our selection to also include the terra cotta nativity figurines from Naples, Italy. They are another handcrafted pottery tradition that goes back several centuries.

Mexican pottery Day of the Dead art includes handcrafted, terra-cotta skeleton figurines and skulls made by the Tomas Hernandez family in Izucar de Matamoros, Puebla. You will also find covered jars and serving trays, bearing the hand-painted face of La Catrina. These are handcrafted by Mayólica Santa Rosa in Guanajuato City. Their jars and vases are turned by hand and then individually-painted in techniques that date back to early Spain and the island of Mallorca.
