Traditional Mountain Earthware

Available at the farm's Grocery

Being so minute in size that it doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page, it’s amazing that something so purposeful and traditional could emerge from a place like La Candelaria.

Nestled in the mountains of the Baja Peninsula, this tiny community has managed to reinforce some cultural heritage with the production of traditional mountain earthenware.

A dear friend of the farm stumbled upon the creational process of this earthenware in her travels around Mexico and took it upon herself to teach the artistry to the La Candelaria community.

So she became the leader of this project and coached local women on how to create these clay pots that were indigenous to the region, but in doing so she has managed to stimulate a micro-economy for her neighbors in this small town. Even more inspiring is her passion to ensure that the demand for these handmade items grows. With that being said, Flora Farms is honored to include Lynda’s Traditional Mountain Earthware to our selective offerings.

Even though these handmade pots are made in the hills of the Baja from local clay, they can still be assigned with the modern term ‘Multi-purpose’ as they can be used in an oven, stove or for serving purposes.

Hand-crafted by locals using earth from the Baja, then fired in an above ground kiln, these clay pots will help to serve up some wonderful nostalgia to anyone who has the pleasure of cooking with them.

About Eclectic Array:

Eclectic Array’s Mission is embracing artisans to create unique handmade products, connecting artisans with consumers and transforming lives across Mexico.

We have incredibly talented artisans across various regions of Mexico, whom all make beautiful items and to see that mass production from overseas had taken over and was hurting the autonomy of our artisan community in Mexico, leaving many with even less work than they had before.

Our concept was inspired by Kiva, a non-profit organization that specializes in “micro-finance loans” given globally to individuals in poverty that are seeking small scale entrepreneurship opportunities. In layman’s terms, that is when you give small monetary amounts as a loan, maybe $100-$1,000 USD and that is given at 0% interest (or a very small interest rate) to empower someone in poverty to improve their lives through entrepreneurship. They can use that money to start a business or grow their business and they take pride in paying back the loan. It is the mentality of “teach a man to fish” - as opposed to a handout that someone may not even appreciate. Through Eclectic Array, we wanted to make a difference in a similar way, giving individuals the opportunity to support these individuals that were great artisans, through their purchase power, which in turn makes a difference in the lives of artisans and for their families to rise above their current economic situation.

FLORENTINO, by artist Jane Lilico

“My inspiration for ‘Florentino’, is a real live burro who lives down by the estuary in San Jose. I wanted him to be androgynous, ethereal, and substantial, with an Old World / Mexican fusion of flavor. Complete with a floral wreath, especially for the launch of the donkeys on Dia de Muertos at Flora Farms. I hope he finds a forever “family” who will love him as much as I do.”


ROSALINDA, by artist Tanya Talamante

“Rosalinda is the treat donkey. She brings the treats anywhere she goes. Her friend the bull guides her anywhere there is a need for a fiesta! Rosalinda loves to entertain so you will see her in her blanc dancing shoes, as well as tools to install anything that is needed.  Rosalinda also has eyes all over her body and that… mean good luck!”.


HESHEBE, by artist Francois Paris

“MUTINY...The story of the donkey who wants to become a unicorn..This piece is about acceptance and respecting others right and freedom they have to choose to be who or what ever they want to be...Respect Others Freedom to choose".

DON RICARDO, by artist Jaznum Fragoso

“Don Ricardo always went by my house and with great pleasure I would greet him mounted on his donkey on his way to Milpa … I do not know how long the donkey lived but I saw the donkey and Don Ricardo for more than 20 years. I dedicate this piece to Don Ricardo's donkey…”


DONKEY, by artist Ximena Sophia

“The name I chose is Donkey, simply because it is what it is. I tried to represent the balance between light and shadow, and how they need each other to create dimensions. The color that comes out from this is the consequence of the creative process, and gives life to the whole idea”.
