Barro negro, the polished, surprisingly light, black pottery (candlesticks, jugs and vases, and decorative animal and bird figures) that you find in hundreds of forms around Oaxaca, comes from San Bartolo Coyotepec, 11km south of the city. For the original source, head to Alfarería Doña Rosa, a short walk east off the highway.
