This family of bowls from Tonaltepec comes in three sizes, making them able to be used for serving a variety of different foods from snacks to salads. These pottery pieces are among the few in the world that use vegetable pigments for decoration. The dark brown color of the stains is achieved when the bowls are removed out of the oven, at a temperature close to 900°C. The artisan then applies an ink made from cactus and oak bark.
