Barro Cross Ornament

Don Luis Gilberto Garcia Blanco has been working barro since he was a child. His mother was the originator of what is now considered a classic style of Atzompa barro: exquisite pieces intricately decorated with flowers and leaves, colored in traditional barro and barro rojo (red clay). Her work was so widely recognized that it’s still found in many museums throughout the world, including the MET in NYC, International Folk Art Museum in Santa Fe, N.M., Mingei Museum in San Diego, and many more. Don Luis learned under her tutelage and continues her tradition in his shop named after her, Artesanias Theodora Blanco. Each piece is meticulously made by hand with no molds or guides.
