Page 12 - Tile and Pottery Makers
This tile maker does all his work by hand. His tiles cost $2 each, so
only wealthy people can buy them for their houses.
He uses a machine that is 100 years old. It uses pressure to force the
tiles into shape. Then, after the tiles are made, they are left to dry
in the sun for 2 days. They are made out of dyes and cement.
Here's the tile we bought. I have NO idea what I'll do with it, but
This is the tile maker's warehouse.
Then we went to a pottery maker's place. I love masks and collect the
Mexican ones that show a skeleton and fleshed face together. This one
was too big to take home except in pictures.
This one was also huge. Can't have everything...
I could have spent hours going thru these!
But, we were off to Copala next!
