Ceramics have been around for a long time. They can be created by using different types of clay and can be shaped or formed by techniques passed down through generations. This exhibit explores special highlights on ceramic works from Michoacán, Guanajuato, Oaxaca, and Yucatán.
For many years, earthenware red clay was the most common type of ceramic work in Michoacán and it consisted mostly of bowls, pots, vessels, and gourds. Their modern pottery is made in burnished, multi-colored, high-fire, glazed and smooth finished, using a mix of European and indigenous techniques.
