Figures and Jars

Handcrafted Pottery

Earthenware pottery is the most common type of Mexican folk art. First made here around 4500 years ago, today it is a melding of the newer, Spanish techniques of glazing and firing with the ancient Indian shapes, colors and patterns. We feature the Barro Policromado from Izucar de Matamoros, especially the renowned designs of the Castillo family. The family makes our multi-colored Menorah candelabras, too. Recently, we have expanded our selection to also include the terra cotta nativity figurines from Naples, Italy. They are another handcrafted pottery tradition that goes back several centuries.

This category features handmade Mexican pottery figures, covered jars and vases from Puebla and Guanajuato states. They include our new collection of Day of the Dead covered jars and serving trays, bearing the hand-painted face of La Catrina. These are handcrafted by Mayólica Santa Rosa. Jars and vases are turned by hand and then individually-painted in techniques that date back to early Spain and the island of Mallorca. Also included in this group are polychrome pottery sculptures with religious or Day of the Dead themes made by the Castillo family in Izucar de Matamoros, PUE.
