How It's Made

Each Porta Cuchara or Spoon Rest is molded from a very dense and durable ceramic known as stoneware. The perfect natural clay composition, stoneware is known for ability to handle high heat, non-toxic natural clay, steadfast weight, and long lasting durability are just a few of the qualities you would expect from a quality tool kitchen. The thoughtful wide concave shape of these Porta Cuchara's will hold a range of spatulas, mixers, tongs and other baking / cooking utensils.

The stoneware spoon rests are twice baked in a high-fire kiln at temperatures reaching 1700˚F. This first bake transforming raw clay down to a molecular level the high heat and curing process forces out tiny air pockets condensing the material so that it is literally as hard as a rock, hence the name "stoneware". The baked stoneware has a wonderful natural vanilla color with a soft matte finish.

Artisan Story
The Textures of Relief Painting

Skilled hands apply the Azules patterns and detailed Sugar Skull artwork, a process that ensures the patterns and artwork on each piece are never identical. This innovative artisanal technique is called "relíeve" meaning "relief." The process requires skilled artisans to apply layers of natural lead-free paint by hand to the surface of each Porta Cuchara / spoon rest. During the 2nd bake temperatures reach 1700˚F, the intense heat changes the relief pattern on a molecular level and literally raises the hand-painted pattern providing a glossy texture just to the painted areas, creating a beautiful contrast to the surface of the stoneware.

Relief Painting, Lasting Beauty Is All About The Little Details.
