How It's Made

After each canisters and lids are molded and sculpted from raw clay they are ready to be cured using a two-bake high-heat firing process. The canisters are first baked in a high-fire kiln at 1700˚F degrees Fahrenheit. The 2nd bake is done at the same high-heat. This bake occurs after the artwork has been painted on and the protective glaze has tediously been applied both inside and out of every canister and lid. This glossy glaze protects the ceramic and hand painted imagery(allowing it to be both water and intense heat proof). The finish also draws out all of the colors and provides a true shine.

Artisan Story
The Inspiration behind this signature design.

The original Catrina artwork that is hand-painted on each canister was adapted from original art created by José Guadalupe Posada (the father of the Catrina). ”La Calavera Catrina" was originally sketched in 1888 by one of Mexico’s first & most infamous satirical cartoonist Señor José Guadalupe Posada.

A Folk-Art hero and Renegade of Mexico.

Born in a small town located in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico on February 2, 1852. As a boy Posada was educated by his older brother. Cirilo taught his younger brother how to read, write, and draw. This small but significant bit of education would prove to be a critical asset to Posada as he matured to become a Mexican political printmaker and engraver. Posada’s work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and skeletons to make political and cultural critiques.
