The little shot glass with the serene smile on its face is known as La Carita. Handmade with love in Mexico, they also make the perfect little trinket bowl, candle holder, etc.
Made from the gorgeous Oaxacan clay known as barro rojo. It has a smooth, matte finish and beautiful red color.
They measure approximately 2.5" x 1.5", and hold about 1.5 ounces of liquid.
These caritas can have unique markings that occur randomly in the firing process. These markings are part of what make each one of a kind.
