El Dorado Imports has for 20+ years created a very successful wholesale business now headquartered in Jalisco, Mexico. We work mostly with families and indigenous groups throughout the country who have been creating these traditional products for generations. We have visited their Talleres and established our relationships based on honesty, good working conditions, quality product control and their ability to fulfill orders in a timely manner.
This is the second generation of the Mateos family from Tonala, Jalisco handcrafting these wonderful black ceramic pieces. This art is inspired from the southern state of Oaxaca where this unique black clay originates.
These pieces are created in some cases with molds and others cases are “thrown” on a potter’s wheel.
The shiny finish is created by a special polishing process and the designs use the Sgraffito technique of incising with a stylus tool.
