About the Artist
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.
