Taller Experimental de Cerámica

I recently visited the Taller Experimental de Cerámica, which is a few blocks from my home in Coyoacán.

The studio was founded in the 1960's by stoneware pioneer, Alberto Díaz de Cossío. If you have been to Mexico City, and love great Japanse food, you have probably seen their dinnerware in some of the best restaurants in town.

As well as their utilitarian production, Alberto and his daughter, Adriana, create unique art works which are also for sale in their studio shop. Each year, they celebrate an open house with friends, quesadillas, and mezcal.
