Amatenango del Valle, Chiapas.
The Manada Jaguar piece is a jewel for home decoration, fusing a contemporary style with the Chiapas pottery tradition. Modeled, assembled, polished and flattened completely by hand by the Zepeda Díaz family, this work reflects the artisanal legacy of the Amatenango del Valle community.
For its firing, a traditional pre-Hispanic technique called "open pit" was used, using firewood and metal structures to support the pieces. The piece was then smoked for a long time in hot coals, covering it with a metal saucepan to give it that distinctive black tone. Inspired by the iconic jaguar creations of the region, this piece features small jaguar heads modeled and assembled by hand from the same clay.

Craft technique: Pottery and ceramics.
Measurements: 25cm x 17cm; 2.5 cm from the jaguar heads; 8 cm diameter of the legs.
Material: Clay.

ABOUT THE PARTNER ORGANIZATION

granny sheep

It was born 5 years ago as a design studio, focused on decorative and utilitarian pieces. Its axis is co-creative processes together with women and men (in some cases) guardians of artisan techniques in municipalities of Chiapas, Oaxaca and San Miguel de Allende.

The study proposal is based on the constant experimentation of fibers, textures, shapes.

The studio works simultaneously on the exploration of concepts for the collections that are part of the catalog and the personalized design for special projects.

Currently, the Abuelita Borrego collection is made up of a line of traditional pottery and a textile line that includes pieces from the pedal loom, waist loom, and needle weaving.
