Santa María Atzompa, Oaxaca

Santa María Atzompa is the home of the Zárate Blanco family, Atzompa comes from the Nahua words atl (“water”), tzontli (head) and pan (“place”), whose meaning is “on the head of the water.” Atzompa Bowl is a decorative piece that honors its place of origin, Atzompa and at the same time is a commemoration of new traditions. The color orange symbolizes traditional pottery that emerged as a method to solve everyday needs. These pieces were made with red clay and were kept in their natural state. The color white symbolizes change, since white clay was born as an innovation of the Zárate family with whom we collaborated to make this piece. To give the tone, before firing the pieces are covered with a special clay, which when heated results in an off-white color. Its manufacture can take more than 1 month, depending on its dimensions and details, since the artist's work begins with collecting the raw materials in local mines, then cleaning the collected clay and then preparing it and passing it to the manual wheel where the final shape is given; Once this process is completed, the decoration of the piece begins and finally it goes to the oven.
