Mario Rodenas from Guatemala

Artisan Mario Rodenas Mario Rodenas says, 'For a very long time, my family has passed our work techniques as well as the art of ceramic and painting from generation to generation. One of the best artisans in our town, my father began patiently teaching us this art form when we were quite young. I remember that the first things I made were little shepherds and sheep for the nativity scenes I imagine were used in homes. Then I learned to make more complicated figures that demanded a great deal of patience to paint ñ I made angels, butterflies and birds.'
