Colectivo 1050°

Oaxaca, Mexico

"We turn mud into beauty." This is how Colectivo 1050°—a brand of clay objects made by hand in Oaxaca—explains its mission. Each object is intended to be as naturally beautiful, simple, and elegant as the artisans that give life to them. 

Colectivo 1050° designs are created collectively. Traditional potters and contemporary designers collaborate to create jugs, fruit bowls, and other functional objects inspired by Oaxacan clay-making traditions and adapted to contemporary lifestyles. These collective talents search for new, creative directions in clay, always striving for harmony between utility and form through fair-trade and ecologically sustainable practices. All products are free of lead and free of exploitation.
