Eligibility:

Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BCE, people have been fascinated with clay. Today, artists continue to astound us as they push the boundaries of our preconceived ideas of what ceramics represent. From playful pieces disguised as everyday objects, to finely detailed vessels, ceramics delights and surprises us in its evolution. Whether you work in a more traditional style, or prefer completely outlandish creations, we want to showcase your vision and techniques from around the world during this annual show.

BARRO TONALTECA / TRADITIONAL TONALTECA CLAY

Share

Type:

Country:

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.
