Hand-formed clay cup with carved upside down face. Each are completely handmade and vary in size and shape. The clay’s color is naturally made without dyes or glazes. All pieces are completely biodegradable and compostable.
Approximate measurements: small 2” wide x 1 ½” high, medium 1 ¾” wide x 2 ½” high, 2 ½” wide x 4 ½” high.
*The material is porous and will sweat upon initial contact with water, which will diminish or disappear with use. To avoid waiting, a traditional Mesoamerican technique is to lather a neutral soap bar over the entire piece, inside and out. Leave the cup in the sun until it dries thoroughly. Then wash the piece removing any excess soap. Let it dry once more, ready for use.
