It felt as though we were on an a camping trip, driving up the rutted trail toward the side of the mountain, next to the clay quarry where the factory sat. It was perched there, surrounded by smaller structures, with wide doors open to the road. Inside were pots and vessels in all directions. For being so thoroughly hidden, and virtually impossible to find by accident, it was a very busy place. We were very glad to have been invited there, because we found the first of what we hope will be a growing collection of major planters and vessels that have a thoroughly architectural reference, large enough to be substantial pieces without overtaking the sun room or yard.
Painting clay pottery is an art form
range of pieces we saw thematically covered
everything from High Grecian to Puerta Vallarta
Villa. We, of course, loved the animals, and
worked on natural colors and sensuous shapes
for this collection. We also made sure to
have a few very traditional Mexican pieces.
