San Germán Pottery is a family owned workshop located in México. They produce the world famous Tonala-style ceramic. Their pottery is 100% handmade using the stoneware technique, and it is hand-painted using the traditional designs and patterns.
Around 1960, ceramist Jorge Wilmot came to Tonala, and introduced the stoneware technique to the traditional pottery workshop. This kind of pottery is burned at very high temperatures--about 1300 degrees Celsius. This makes the pottery extremely resistant and gives it distinctive enamel-like surface. It also makes the pottery 100% lead free.
