Eligibility:

Curator - Fernando Jimon + Marina Jimon (Mexico)

During this residency we will find passion and dedication for two prehispanic, Mexican clay making traditions from Tonala, Jalisco. These techniques have been part of the Jimon family for six generations. Their artisanal lifestyle has taken them around the  world sharing their knowledge as well as the history, culture and talent of their  hometown. 

“Barro bruñido” (Rub Clay) technique comes from the rubbing a pyrite stone on the  shaped and painted pieces of clay, and as the last step they are burned in a traditional  open sky tonaltecan style wood kiln. 

“Barro bandera” (Flag Clay) derives this name from the colors of green, white and red  (colors of the Mexican flag) and isan almost forgotten technique, thus making the Jimon  family more eggar to share it with the world.  

With pleasure and honour the Jimon family will share their ancestral knowledge at  Anima Casa Rural to all artists interested in this residency.
