We have a lot of incredible memories (both good and bad) of buying and selling the beautiful burnished clay pots of Huancito. I love their art and enjoy sharing it with folks in the U.S. Here's a good story about how we met a young artisan from one of the village's families online.
is committed to working with potters in Mexico who use sustainable methods for producing food safe pottery. We buy lead-free pottery from the artisans because it is important to us to protect the health of the artisans, their families, and you-- the consumer.
