The Riches of Mexican Pottery
A Presentation by Eric Mindling

Museum of International Folk Art

Doors open at 2:30 p.m. for Reception

Discover the riches of Mexican Pottery including the native ways and rare processes of forming, finishing and firing.

Please join us on Sunday, April 21 at 3pm in the Vernick Auditorium for a presentation on the riches of Mexican Pottery. Eric Mindling spent the decade of his 20’s sleuthing out every village in Oaxaca he could find that makes pottery. He learned the diversity of ways of forming, finishing, and firing pottery native to this land including clay harvesting, stone burnishing, the use of earth pigments and rare processes of tannin dying pottery. Eric writes, “Many of these pottery ways are on the verge of disappearing. To visit, to purchase, to publicize, to praise makes a difference.” 

Eric Mindling is the author of Fire and Clay, the Art of Oaxacan Pottery. This book is an homage to the wisdom of the ancestral indigenous potters throughout the wildly diverse state of Oaxaca, Mexico.
