BARRO Smoked Salt Cellar

BARRO Smoked Salt Cellar

from 12.00

The exquisite BARRO Smoked Salt Cellars are handcrafted from natural Oaxacan clay, mixed with organic copal, tobacco leaves and rosemary for its distinctive colors.

The artisans use a mold and then form by hand, before firing the pottery in handmade outdoor pit fire kilns. They are then introduced to a bath of organic plants straight from kiln, which provides a smoky finish to the pieces.

Handcrafted by an artisan family in Southern Mexico, who have been producing handmade works for generations.

  • Natural clay with organic copal, tobacco and rosemary.
