Huaman Paucar Family--'We hail from the capital of the Inca Empire, situated deep in the Peruvian Andes. We dress our jars and decorative plates in beautiful designs from ancient Peru. Each carries the powerful, elemental mystery of water and earth. Our family's journey in the ceramic arts is influenced by the customs and lifestyles of my village, a village of ceramic artisans. Our work is meticulous, and we put forth much effort in the finishing touches. In our home-based workshop we also teach other ceramists, and many have stayed to work with us. Our clay pieces are molded both on an old-fashioned potter's wheel and by hand. Later they are fired in a brick oven that reaches a temperature of 800-900 degrees Celsius. After this, we decorate them using varied tones of paints and pigments.'
