embrace art in everyday life ♥ Folk Treasures of Mexico ♥ October 29 - February 19
Here is a guide of Mexican Folk Art Treasures from the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology at Berkeley that I found, that describes some of the various artforms we have in our exhibit. I found the condensed descriptions quite helpful .
There's also this Family guide right from the San Antonio musuem on this exhibit:
Also try Google: You Tube + Oaxaca + black pottery
and you will get some interesting links to the process of shaping and firing the black pottery piece.
Hope this helps.
