This set includes four mezcal tasting cups (copitas) made by Oaxaca’s premier artisan ceramics studio La Chicharra. Copitas are sized for sipping, and their wide mouths allow the mezcal to open up, unfolding deep layers of flavor. Get your nose in there and take in the mezcal’s smoky and floral notes. Don’t forget orange slices as a palate cleanser between sips.

What's Old is New

Oaxacan pottery practices date back 3,000 years, and artisanship is ingrained in the local culture. There are at least 70 villages in the area known for their ceramics, pairing ancient techniques with local clays. La Chicharra founders Maria Fernanda and Lalo share a belief that in order for artesanía, as it’s known in Mexico, to take its place in the modern world and be shared with a broader audience, it must evolve by embracing elements of technology and design. They bridge tradition and technology at their studio: while the clay for each piece is made and mixed from scratch using local materials, some pieces, like the mug, are shaped with molds produced by 3D printers for the sake of consistency. In the end, each gets smoothed, perfected and glazed by hand.
