These beautiful ceramics are made by hand in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca and can have unique markings that occur randomly in the firing process. These markings are not considered defects, all our ceramics are wood fired, so the temperature of the kiln can vary and that can make the interior glaze appear cracked, this is also not considered a defect.
