Details

This rectangular barro negro pencil holder is handcrafted by artisan Anakarem of Oaxaca, who works as a team with his father. Barro negro, literally translated as "black mud," is a type of pottery from clay only found in Oaxaca, Mexico, and crafted using traditional methods. The black color comes from the clay itself, enhanced during the firing process. This pencil holder has a flower on each side made through a combination of embossing and decorative cutouts.

"Very nice pencil holder!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The pencil holder has a nice weight to it and a lovely design. The finish of the ceramic seems a bit organic compared to the vase I ordered. It is not a polished look. It has a artisan look to it which I like. Perfect size and holds quite a few pens, pencils, highlighters. Very nice and unique happy with my purchase. Would make a great gift.

"Excellent craftsmanship"

A small but bold statement piece. Lovely detailing and the Oaxacan black clay makes it that much more unique. Perfect as a tribute for my Mexican heritage

"Most Pretty Bud Vase"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This little bud vase is very pretty, sturdy but yet delicate in the way the cut outs are around the base. I really like the black clay because one can use with any decor in any room. Thank you so much. I did see the video as to how you make your items and I am very impressed.
