Ana Beatriz follows her ancestral heritage and craft- her mother has dedicated more than three decades to the art of Oaxacan pottery, learning herself from Ana's grandfather. These pieces are born from ancient traditions that have been passed down through generations.
The family's work in clay is fire and water and is described in the indigenous language of Nahuatl as Atlachinolli or ‘burned water' – the art of combining opposites, combining opposing forces, to create beauty. The clay pieces are formed with water and are born of fire. Pieces are created with reverence for not only ancestors and tradition, but the nature of the universe and all things Ying and Yang.
