We watched Pep Madrenas and his son work on this pottery mosaic at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. The designs on the pottery were made with a special tool they developed. We sadly learned that because they had no way to fire these pieces they would be all broken up and the clay reused in the future. Our grandchildren who were with us got to make their own beautiful bowls. It was an amazing experience.
