Story Behind the Art:
'Our story is one of a family birthright. My grandmother, Dona Rosa, created the glossy black pottery technique and greatly helped in letting this type of ceramics become known throughout Mexico and the world. When she passed away, my father, Valente Nieto, inherited her technique but sadly, in 2010, he passed away. Today, we five sons and daughters have the obligation to keep Dona Rosa's memory and proud heritage alive.'
