  • HAND PAINTED DESIGNS make the pottery of the Valley of México beautiful and singular... Above, an expert in Tonalá. decorates a vessel with paints made from ochre and the different dirts and sands of the Valley.
  • FROM TONALA COMES a variety of ceramic styles. The dark colored pottery in the foreground is sometimes designed with white ochre. Before firing, these vessels are burnished with a piece of metal to give them their valuable sheen.
  • OVER THREE THOUSANDS YEARS of uninterrupted pottery making is reflected in the style of this Tlaquepaque ware. Some of the exhibits above were actually made in pre-Hispanic times, others are more recent, but all reflect the some similarities of style.
  • THE MARKET OF OAXACA is one of the world's finest centers for the purchase of authentic mexican pottery. The beautiful glaze attained by the pottery makers is called "greta" and cones form a special type mixture of earth and liquids developed by the natives.
  • THE POTTERY WHEEL is used extensively in the manufacture of Tlaquepaque. pottery Prehispanic cultures did not use this wheel, which first appeared in Mexico after the Conquest.
  • AFTER THE POTTERY has been fashioned on the wheel, patterns are hand-pointed by experts as shown in the picture above. The brushes are made from dogs' hair, and the designs are unique and personal, with no two pieces ever decorated exactly alike.
  • POTTERY MAKING in Mexico has a history of its own: Some ceramic types are similar to those mode thousands of years ago; others reflect definite Spanish and Moorish influences. All, however, are among the most beautiful examples of pottery found in the world today.
