These salseros (salsa bowls) are designed by Don Sergio using a special artisan technique from Michoacán called "capulineado." Capulineado is typically painted in uniform colors (mostly pastels) and resembles the shape of small flowers.

About the Artisans:

Don Sergio learned how create "capulineado" designs from his father and has been perfecting his craft since the age of 10.

About the Capulineado Process: 

  • Sieving: All the particles and dirt are removed from the clay.
  • Kneading: The clay is mixed with water and a mud mixture is formed (this process requires lots of strength).
  • Molding: The artisans begin to mold the clay into dishes, saucers, tequileros, etc.
  • Drying: The pieces are then left to dry in the sun.
  • Painting: Using handmade brushes made from squirrel tail hair, the artisans begin to paint the base and then add the details (capulineado).
  • Baking: The pieces are then baked at 1292 degrees Farenheit for 3 hours.
  • Top-Coat: The pieces are then taken out of the oven and painted with lead free enamel to give them an extra bit of shine.
  • Final Baking:  The pieces are then sent back to the oven for 2-3 more hours at 1652 degrees Farenheit.
