Details

This oval barro negro pencil holder is handcrafted by artisan Anakarem of Oaxaca, who works as a team with his father. Barro negro, literally translated as "black mud," is a type of pottery from clay only found in Oaxaca, Mexico, and crafted using traditional methods. The black color comes from the clay itself, enhanced during the firing process. This pencil holder has two quarter flowers on a diagonal on each side made through a combination of embossing and decorative cutouts.

"Time to ditch your coffee mug/pencil cup!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

If you re not using a pen/pencil cup as gorgeous as this one, it s time to upgrade! A huge improvement from a coffee mug and still big step up from anything you ll find at your big box office supply store. Wonderfully handcrafted with a graphite-like sheen.

Best Uses

  • Pen/pencil cup, dry vase

"For My Mexican Friend"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this for my best friend (her family is from Mexico) for her birthday. I didnt actually see it because it came to me giftwrapped, but it was WELL protected in its box. It was wrapped for dear life. So, if youre concerned about the fragility of it... Im not sure how it could possibly break with how well they packaged it in paper.
