Tepalcate originally comes from the Náhuatl word ‘Tepalcatl’, which means clay junk. Nowadays many Mexican people refer to Tepalcates as broken pieces of what once used to be a complete piece of clay. Yunúen Hernández designed this object with an appealing grooved finish to be a complete master piece for holding plants, a symbol of life, which was maybe the most important gift her Mexican ancestors gave to their gods. The pots are available in different appealing colors.
