History: SInce 1995 a group of Mexican artesans have been working together to keep working the handmade pottery traditions that have been in place since pre-Columbian times - from before the Europeans settled in Latin America and influenced the pottery making.
Our associate families stick to the procedures used by their families for generations and some procedures added by our association. We put our sweat and emotions into this clay and hope you appreciate our handwork, wherever you may be.
- Our designs are exclusive from our design studio in the Netherlands. Beautiful lines. Great function, It is our aim to take the Mexican folk art of clay pottery to a higher level. Combining outdoor fire and cookout. Bringing the BBQ and pizza baking experience onto your table. Cooking, eating and laughing together in the garden.
- Sol-y-Yo products are environmentally sound products, handmade according to ancient traditions in Latin America. These traditional methods of producing pottery have been around for many generations. The process from mixing the clay to painting the finished product is by hand. Our clay has no chemical ingredients. You can feel the earth in every piece.
- We will try to pack our products as much as possible in packaging that shows and explains the handmade process to help create an appreciation for our handwork. Guaranteed no more than 2% breakage in your container shipment.
- No child work. No exceptions.
The Sol-y-Yo label on your product guarantees that you have bought a genuine artisan-made product from one of the members of our association. Smell our earth; feel the texture. Enjoy!
