handmade ceramic mugOur ceramic pottery is produced by a Mayan cooperative in San Antonio Palopo next to Lake Atitlan. This group was trained by World Famous Potter, Ken Edwards. The clay in the region is perfect to  create these wonderful stoneware mugs and crosses.  The Mayan families Ken trained hand paint each piece and all the work is done with kilns, ovens and  wheels they built themselves in their small shop.
