Mexican Family Creates Handmade Pottery Using Natural Clay

Pedro Hernández Carlos, Isabel Cerrano, and their family make handmade pottery using natural clays they find nearby their home in San José de Gracia, Michocán.

“The history of glazed ceramics goes back to the colonial times. Bishop Quiroga, fondly known to the locals as Tata Vasco, or grandfather Vasco, brought the art of glazing pottery from the old world back in the early 1500s. Tzintzuntzán, the ancient capital of the Purepecha culture, was the original ceramics center, which spread throughout Michoacán. The Sierra Volcanica, famous as the home of the Monarch butterflies, is still today the home of the Purepecha people,” Vallarta Tribune writes.
