Micaceous clay cookware has been a fixture in New Mexico for many centuries... derived from mountain geologic schist beds, micaceous clay has a inherently high mica content that enhances it’s thermal stability while serving as a natural temper that strengthens the vessels crafted from it. Recognized by their golden to copper colored glistening surfaces when newly made, these ubiquitous pots blacken and deepen with use over wood fires and have become emblematic of historical kitchens, hearths & campfires throughout northern New Mexico.
