Barro Canelo Pottery 


The pre-Hispanic techniques used for making Barro Canelo pottery have been passed down from generation to generation in the Pajarito family. The labor-intensive process begins with gathering and crushing cinnamon-colored (Canelo) stones to make the clay, then forming and burnishing the pottery, painting with animal-hair brushes, and finally firing in a wood-burning kiln.
