These engraved jícaras from the village of Pinotepa de Don Luis, Oaxaca are the result of a technique passed down through generations of artisans; in our case, they are handcrafted by José Cruz Sanz. The jícara, or dried gourd, comes from the Ciria tree that grows along the Oaxacan coast and is engraved using tools called gubias of varying sharpness, as well as sandpaper and acrylic paint for polishing and decorating. The engraved designs reflect the context of the region, including the coast’s flora and fauna as well as other cultural icons and symbols. Jícaras are commonly used for serving and sipping mezcal or tequila, as a serving bowl for spices and salts, or simply as decor.

  • Due to the artisanal nature of this handmade product no two are alike.

    Due to the natural and artisanal processes involved in the production of our handmade items, no two pieces will be the same. While there may be some slight variations in shape and color, the integrity and quality of the product will remain intact; Casa Y Cocina would never ship you an item we wouldn’t be proud to use and/or display in our own homes. We inspect all items before shipping and pack all orders with care.

    Product photos are a close representation of this item. The physical color may vary slightly from the product photo on our website due to different device screen settings, the lighting in your home, and slight differences in product finishes over time, among other factors.
