Story Behind the Art: Angel Ceron comes from a family with generations of artisan experience. He learned the family ceramic techniques from his father, Antonio Ceron Orta, a renowned artisan. Angel began a long study of Mexico's pre-Hispanic cultures and learned the Nahuatl language spoken in ancient Mesoamerica. Ceron uses clay from northern Oaxaca state, the only clay of this kind in Mexico and perhaps in the world. The unique characteristics of this yellow clay make it ideal for molding. It dries evenly and is especially hard, thus it is resistant to impact and can withstand very high temperatures.

I have been looking for an Azrec calendar for years at flea markets, with no luck. I stumbled across this one on Overstock.com and sent it to my son as a gift. It did take awhile for him to receive it, but it arrived before Christmas, so that was all that mattered.
