Eric Mindling, a self-defined potterologist has explored Oaxaca and its 70 plus pottery villages for more than twenty years. This experience has become Fire and Clay – The Art of Oaxacan Pottery, a panoramic vision of the past, present and future of Oaxacan pottery.
Also available in English edition.
Eric Mindling has lived in Southern Mexico and worked closely with hundreds of rural artisans since 1992 when he landed a job, fresh out of college, as a pottery buying agent for Jackalope Pottery in New Mexico. His job was to travel the backroads of Oaxaca, find interesting pottery and ship it to the store. Through years of travelling down remote roads to small villages in search of yet another lost pottery village Eric learned his way through the wilds of backcactus Mexico. Eric is a member of the creative platform “Innovando la Tradicion”. He is currently (2015) working on a first of its kind photo documentary of traditional fashion in the indigenous villages of Oaxaca.
