These pottery pieces are not your ordinary earthen vessels — they are beautiful pieces of history. These are Chamba black pottery, a craft unique to the town of La Chamba in Tolima, Colombia.
The clay itself possesses a distinct composition marked by the presence of mica, which enhances heat resistance, making it ideal for cookware and bakeware. They are hand-formed by artisan women from the small villages in this Andean town, burnished, and fired, in pretty much the same way it has been done for 700 years. The addition of powdered grass near the end of the firing process gives these vessels their arresting smoky blackness.
