Pottery is probably the most popular Mexican folk art, and one of the most ancient. Pottery is found throughout the country, in many different styles and forms.

Villages often specialize in making certain types of pottery. In many areas of the country women might make the common ware like containers for food and liquids, and men the decorative pieces used for ceremonies, household decoration or for sale.

Our selection ranges from common everyday pottery (la coza corriente), colorful animal and human figurines to large clay pieces by famous artists such as Josefina Aguilar.

 We also carry pottery from Africa and India. Above are some, mostly antique, Indian deities and figures.

The tree of life (candelabra) is a popular form of art in Mexico. Shaped in the form of a tree, it is then crafted in great detail with figures such as people, branches, flowers, fruit, animals and other subject matter. Trees of life usually hold candles and are often placed as decorative objects at weddings, churches, funerals, and various special occasions.
