About the Artisans:
Santa María Atzompa is recognized around the world for creating beautiful products made of green clay, red clay and for their specific technique in molding clay flowers and leaves. Their designs have a distinct color and high quality, which is known as the "filigree" designs for clay. This specific design of clay is created by molding the figures by hand. Afterwards, the artisans add strips of clay to decorate the piece with clay flowers and leaves. To make these pieces, two types of clay are used, the traditional clay from Santa Maria Atzompa and a red clay called "Donají."
