Barro Negro de Jalisco

About …

The Barro Negro of Jalisco is only elaborated by the family of Pablo and Eusebio Mateos. It is an almost extinct technique, for the moment no one is completely dedicated to learn it which means that this may be the last generation to practice it. This technique is for decorative purpose only, it can’t get wet because of its natural process. The process involves one normal bake and a special bake using Eucalyptus leaves that turns the piece magically into black.
