About the Artist

Florentino Jimon


Barro Brunido – typical to Tonala
Family specializes in Bandera pottery because it uses colors of the flag
White color is called “matiz” and is extracted from the earth.  Many others now use commercial colors, but Florentino still uses the traditional “matiz”.
Clays are extracted from the hills near Tonala and are excavated in large chunks of red, black and white.
Sifted into a fine powder and then water is added and the clay “ferments” over a period of time.
Paints and pigments made using the same clay and mixed with pigments from the earth.
Once the clay is molded and dried, the decoration process begins – called “palmeado”
The final burnishing that is done is done with tallow.
Pieces are then fired once in an open kiln.
The process takes much time, but is vital to the quality.

Shipping through fedex ground.

Shipping quoted in auctions and buy it now is for Continental US mail and shipping rates. If you are in Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico email for shipping quote. Often flat rate boxes to these areas is more economical.  If shipping is not quoted, please do not pay before shipping is included. 

Combined Shipping

 I combine shipping on multiple items and look for the best rate for you. Please take into account that rates have gone up and we do not make money on shipping. We generally ship through FEDEX, USPS and UPS. Plesase wait for the combined invoice before paying.

INCLUDED IN ALL SHIPPING IS THE COST OF SHIPPING SUPPLIES TO PACK AND SHIP YOUR ITEM SECURELY! We take extra time to pack your items because we want them to arrive safely.

International Shipping

 International bidders will be given shipping rates to that specific country. I reserve the right to request shipping with tracking and signature on delivery which are often required by paypal for buyer and seller protection. These rates can be two to three times higher than priority shipping by USPS.  Inquire before bidding if you are concerned about the rate.
