We walked through more narrow alleyways to a ceramics fabricator. The place was started by an American named Ken Edwards 25 years ago, and he taught them to use modern techniques for firing and painting (without lead). When he didn't want to be involved anymore, he left the business for the locals, who continued in his tradition.

The clay comes from Huehuetenango. It is fashioned via moulds and is fired several times at very high temperatures in the kilns. They are then sanded, painted, glazed, and fired again.
