  • History Mexican black pottery, also known as barro negro pottery, comes from Oaxaca in Mexico, and is very specific to this region. The clay that is found in this area is of a rare black color, at a density that is perfect for pottery. Traditionally, barro negro is a sooty gray color with a slightly chalky residue, but was revamped in the 1950’s with a beautiful polished finish. Since the inception of this polished look by a potter named Doña Rosa, whose family shop is still going strong in Oaxaca, the gleaming finish of barro negro has ramped up in popularity once more. Style The black sheen of the Mexican black pottery finish is one of the most distinctive features of this type of pottery, however, there are several other features that also make Mexican black pottery extremely beautiful. The polished surfaces are often carved out or etched with very detailed and intricate patterns and shapes that contrast perfectly with the often-bulbous shape of the pieces themselves. The etchings and carvings have a distinctive Mexican flare about them, and are always carefully crafted by hand.

    • 3. The origin of Talavera pottery begins in China where glazed pottery began. Chinese techniques and designs were brought to Spain via Majorca by the Moors by the end of the 12th century. From there it spread to the rest of Europe, under the name majolica. Spanish craftsmen near Toledo, Spain, adopted and added to the art form.
