Brunido Hand Made Barro Tea Cup
Whether you’re serving up an old fashioned or a relaxing cup of chamomile tea, these rustic vessels are the ideal go-to for various occasions. Every piece is individually made by hand on a simple wheel, treated with an exterior colour made from local river mud, along with the same burnishing process used to create ancient pottery found in local excavations of Monte Alban. They’re pit fired, food safe, and the natural clay helps to retain both cold and heat.
Our master artisan partner combines her artistic eye with techniques that she learned from artisans in Puebla to create incredible works of art. Her creative practice simultaneously speaks to Mexican tradition, as well as a minimalist contemporary aesthetic. This particular line of delicately hued blush bruñido works are the result of our direct collaboration. They are made to our specifications, exclusively for our collection, and are a sublime compliment to any space.

Hand wash, and do not place in the dish washer or microwave. These pieces are food safe, however care should be taken to not place anything greasy inside or they may stain. They are fine for holding water for shorter periods and do not sweat, but the pieces may gradually lose their sheen if they are filled with water for extended periods.
