Colombia: Vicki is thrilled to meet and work with local potters.

 Black Clay Potters of La Chamba Create World Reknown Ceramicwares, and Welcome Me into Their Studios.


   Work is Carefully Placed in Metal Barrels, and Heated in Wood-Fueled Ovens.  

The Barrels are then Carefully Pulled Out, Shoveled with Horse Manure, and Covered, to Smoke and Obtain their Signature Black Coloring.



Around Raquira town, Potters Continue Techniques Passed Down over Generations.

On La Guajira Penninusula, the Ameche Family of Potters and I Shared our Knowledge, and Memorable Days Together.
