Ok, my mind is officially blown. This museum has such an amazing collection of ancient through contemporary work, including miniatures, sculptures made of gum, masks, metal, textiles and so on. i can only talk about a few things here at a time, because to review the entire exhibition would take books, which have already been written, so I won't trouble with it. This will come in 4 dispatches.
And we only made it to 2.5 floors out of 4.
This one is bigger that I could wrap my arms around. Like a giant heart. In the window you can see the lovely museum. The burn marks on this one are heavenly.
This is contemporary, but is done in a traditional majolica style. check out the silver trim. this is amazing in person.
The permanant exhibition includes contemporary pottery.
There are so many styles of ceramics that I have seen over the years from Mexico, and it seems like all of them originate in Oaxaca.
