Heirlooms in the Making: The Backstrap Textiles of Rosa
Tradition Meets Innovation: The Ceramics of Francisco
For generations, the women in Rosa's family have been creating handwoven wool textiles using natural undyed wool, which they card, spin and weave with incredible skill on backstrap looms in Chiapas, Mexico.
With a family history rooted in handmade pottery work, Francisco learned the tools of his trade from generations of artisans. Francisco continues to honor the work of his ancestors through his current creative practice, however he has taken the teachings of his inspired lineage to the next level by introducing unusual natural elements to his work.
