He taught me everything there is to know about this craft. I was a little boy when I started following dad around his workshop, getting familiar with everything in it, and learning the processes - from kneading the clay, to decorate the pieces and pack them. From dad I learned about dedication and responsibility to my work, and from mom I learned about perseverance, discipline and saving. From my dearest aunt Lupe I learned about the love with which one must craft each single piece, and about being consistent with everything I undertake. I love the folklore in each piece as well as working with the materials. We strive towards up keeping tradition and the high quality of our work. We only use clay from the state of Puebla and lead free enamels which are tested to ensure our products are safe. I imagine that maybe 100 years will pass and some day someone will find one of my signed pieces and people will learn my name.
