Story Behind the Art:
The Huaman Paucar Family from Peru is proud heir to an artistic family legacy: 'Our family's journey in the ceramic arts has been influenced by the customs and lifestyles of my village, a village of ceramic artisans. We dress our jars and decorative plates in beautiful designs from ancient Peru. Each carries the powerful, elemental mystery of water and earth. In our home-based workshop we also teach other ceramists in our tradition, and many have stayed to work with us.'
