- Burnt Skull Ceramic Mezcal Copita
Burnt Skull Ceramic Mezcal Copita
MAKER: Lalo Martínez
A bold and beautiful creation by Eduardo Martinez.
Each copita is a handcrafted ode to Oaxaca's rich cultural tapestry, with a meticulously sculpted skull nestled inside, serving as an emblem of life's fleeting beauty and the storied traditions of Dia de Los Muertos.
Infused with the natural minerals of Oaxacan clay, these copitas not only enhance the flavor of your mezcal; they impart each sip with the earth's essence.
Lalo's expertise ensures that while the theme remains constant, no two copitas are alike—each one boasts subtle differences in style and finish, making your piece truly one-of-a-kind.
Celebrate the art of mezcal and the legacy of Oaxaca with a copita that's as individual as your taste. Embrace the unique; indulge in the tradition.

Open firing is one of the most primitive methods of firing ceramics and requires a great deal of skill to produce pottery. The process involves heating clay to a high temperature, in an outdoors custom built firing oven, causing it to harden and become more durable.
The final appearance of a fired piece is dependent on several factors, including the firing temperature, duration, weather conditions, and drying time. These variables can affect the texture, color, and overall look of the piece. Firing ceramics is a delicate process that requires careful attention to detail and expertise.
Since the clay pieces are exposed directly to the strong flames for a period of time, they often carry a smoky scent that diminishes with use. However, a warm, earthy smell of clay remains, adding to the overall character of the piece. Open firing is a time-honored technique that has been used for centuries to create unique and beautiful ceramics.
The finishing process is natural and looks different on every piece. Keep in mind that your purchase won't look exactly as the pictures on the website.
