These red clay cups are hand carved and formed to display a couples face peeking over their edge of the drinking lip. Original work by José Garcia Antonio. 

José Garcia Antonio uses clay from the ground of his native village San Antonio Del Castillo Velasco in Oaxaca, Mexico. Taking inspiration from nature, the image of his wife and figures in the Zapotec tradition, Garcia has been making his majestic terracotta figures for nearly fifty years. Although he is now nearly blind with cataracts, he continues to work daily.   

Measurements: Height 4", Width 3" 

Measurements vary, as each piece is formed by hand. Sold as single cups. For any unglazed ceramics it is also best to use soda powder or non-chemical washing liquids when cleaning.
