Details

This triangular 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

"How beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this vase. I am able to put a small set of lights at the bottom and add dried flowers. In the Fall, I look forward to lots of gold and orange to compliment the black vase. It was packed very carefully and arrived much quicker than I anticipated. Thanks so much!
