Story Behind the Art:
'I love being an artisan.' Roberto Perez exclaims. 'When you've been trained in this craft, it's difficult to leave it I tell people this work is my vice. Ceramics are crafted by hand and not just anyone can do it well. When we started Mayan-Ke, we didn't have money to buy a potter's wheel, so we made our own with material we had available in our houses. We brought boards and rulers and such. I got a door that wasn't in use, took it apart and brought it to the workshop. Even today, we continue using that wheel for our work.'
