Barro Bruñido (Burnished Pottery) is an age old technique in the Tonalteca tradition of Central Mexico. Jose Luis Hernandez and his family have been creating this unique art for generations by finding the finest deposits of black, red and white clay with varying proportions of silica.

The ceramic gloss is achieved by rubbing with a special stone called pyrite. The paints used for decorating are made by mixing clays and adding earth pigments. The decoration (palmeado) of the traditional Flora and Fauna plus his own unique designs are applied with a variety of brushes formed with animal hair.

The final result is stunning pieces of art that will be passed on for generations.
