Metepec & its Art in Clay - Book Cover

Metepec & its Art in Clay

When asked whether he is an artist or an artisan, one potter in Metepec responded that he is only a lover of clay. This issue is a celebration of that passion as it explores the ceramic production of an exceptional community in the State of Mexico—from pots and household objects to the most imaginative decorative pieces. There can be no doubt that this is a living and growing tradition.
