San Luisito Mezcalero Set
The San Luisito Mezcalero set is beautifully made by the hands of potters of San Luisito, Guanajuato, an area that once was famous nationally and internationally, thanks to its prominent artisans. San Luisito has since lost recognition and followers and less and less artisans practice this art.
The neighborhood of San Luisito has been inhabited for 200 years by multiple potters, men who artfully create objects from the earth and with these products achieve a way of life.
To pay homage to the heritage of this town and its talented artisans, Ruralista has collaborated with the town's potters to create bespoke pieces for a special collection entitled "Relatos de Bajío." The San Luisito Mezcalero Set is one of the limited pieces made for this collection and is made of burnished clay using a rustic method of production.
Set Includes: 1 - Mezcalera, 2 - Mezcaleros
Measurements: 7.75"H x 7"W Mezcalera ; 2"H x 3"W Mezcaleros
*All items sold by Vía Raíz are handmade. Therefore they may have small "imperfections" or slight variations of color and design between each product—we think that is part of the beauty of having something made with care by individual artisans.
