I started in this craft at the age of eight to help my mother who raised me and my four siblings on her own. When I was trying to set up my own workshop back in the 1980's, I was afraid of not being able to sell anything but a woman from Mexico City believed in me and started selling my works over there. Though it was a challenging time, it was also very exciting and satisfying as I was able to build a house for my family, feed my nine children and pay for their education. I use clay and ceramic paints as my main materials. I enjoy preparing the clay and working with my team of 13 artisans. To make the tiles, we mix clay and pour it into molds for 2-3 days until they have dried. After polishing and detailing the tiles we bake them. Then we paint them and bake them for another eight hours for the paint to crystallize and achieve a characteristic raised finish. This work is my life, I enjoy it a lot and I believe I was born for it." read more
