Micaceous clay Cookware is available to buy directly from Felipe or is also available from Cafe Pasquals at 103 East Water Suite G, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501.
Each pot is hand built from micaceous clay that is dug from ancient clay pits. These micaceous clay pots are fired at a very high temperature and finished pots are ideal for cooking. The vessels were traditionally used for cooking over an open flame and are very suitable for use in the modern kitchen.
Felipe's micaceous clay pots cost $100 per quart plus S&H, and are available in different styles including Traditional Jicarilla Apache Bean pots, open bowls and casseroles.
