Story Behind the Art:
'I learned from an early age to work hard to be able to provide for one's family, because I had to work when I was in primary school,' says Mexico's Pedro Alba. 'I've taken quite a few ceramic courses around the country and my technique is completely handcrafted. Over the years my workshop has grown to such an extent that I can now offer work to people in my community.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
