The Ceramics of Tonala - Book Cover

The Ceramics of Tonala

Ceramics from Tonalá captivate each of our five senses. Our eyes are drawn by their immediacy: form, color and design are contemplated from afar. Hearing and touch also participate in the enjoyment of their sonority, porosity and polish. Water stored in a clay pot from Tonalá is said to take on a purer and more appealing taste. But it is the sense of smell that truly benefits from its encounter with this pottery with a unique scent.
