|The potter's house|
We began by meeting Julio, a third-generation potter who worked in a small, open-air studio. He explained that he uses a lower temperature to bake his ceramics (and even hopes to patent this idea). Unlike many local artisans, he uses lead-free glazes on his products so they can safely be used to serve food.
Miguel graciously let me try weaving. If it looks like I'm working painstakingly slowly, you are correct.
