Black Clay Spiked Bowl


Member Price

This spiked bowl is in a shape that has been found in Pre-Colulmbian pottery. It was made by artisans in San Bartolo Coyotepec, Oaxaca. There are over 600 families in the community who work in this traditional craft. Objects made of barro negro, black clay, such as this one, are not colored or dyed to create the rich color. It is created because of the properties of the clay found in the surrounding hills and through the firing process. 

LACMA's permanent collection includes examples of Pre-Columbian objects made from black clay.
