Oaxacan Ceramics

Bio

Colectivo 1050 is a brand of clay objects made by hand in Oaxaca. All of them are naturally beautiful, simple and elegant, just like the artisans that give life to them. We turn mud into beauty.

Our designs are created collectively. Traditional potters and designers collaborate to create jugs, fruit bowls and other functional objects inspired by Oaxacan traditions of clay and adapted to contemporary lifestyles. Our pieces merge the wisdom of tradition with the dynamism of innovation. Our objects are born by fire.

As a collective, we search for new creative directions for clay and the artisans of Oaxaca. We strive to function through fair/solidarity trade, and with ecologically sustainable practices. Our products are free of lead, free of exploitation.
