Pai Pai Small Clay Plate
HANDCRAFTED IN BAJA
Small clay plates handmade in the Pai Pai community of Baja, Mexico. The black markings are a result of the ground-firing process, making each piece entirely unique. We love these beautiful plates to store and display jewelry, bathroom accessories or for serving small appetizers.
This type of pottery is designed and handmade by Daria Mariscal in a very remote town in northern Baja, Mexico. Daria harvests and hand-processes the local clay and ground-fires each piece, as generations of her female ancestors have before her. She is one of less than 200 members of the Pai Pai group, an indigenous community in Baja pre-dating the Spanish settlement. Daria speaks Pai Pai and Spanish.
Due to the handmade nature of the pieces, each one will vary slightly in size, shape, and appearance.
These are very limited edition pieces; we have only a few and do not re-stock often.
