We’re Back, Come See Us.

We’re at 50% power, as I sit here back in Fernandia Beach Florida again waiting to pick up my truck. Victoria and Derek were driven home to Brooklyn last week and we dusted off the gallery and places some new acquisitions on the shelves. Even though I’m away again,  we are back, and Victoria will be holding regular hours on the weekends.

So we’ve finished up over 2-years of shopping and collecting, now we have to sell something. We’ve put a lot onto getting the place furnished with some of the best Mexican Folk Art we could find, and if we’re going to make this a success (help the artisans), we’ve got to sell and re-order. Our one-time purchases are not going to help them in the long run, and we’ve reassured them that we’re in this venture for the duration. We ask that you stop in and see us, especially you serious collectors or anyone looking for a nice gift. I ask that you forward this page (or a link to the site in general) if you know any interior designers who are seeking top-quality items. I don’t think you can find a nicer collection of Mexican Folk Art in this area, aside from a museum.

TWEET, Like Us or share on FaceBook, we really do need some help, and we’re calling on our collective community out there for some assistance. Thanks…

    You are doing work I have dreamed of happening to promote Mexican crafts! Were you able to visit the Aguilar sisters in Oaxaca state, who make many characters out of clay? They were taught by their mother. I am especially interested in finding the virgin figure of the patron mother of Oaxaca. I saw her likeness in a church in Oaxaca City. One of the other members in my tour group about four years ago bought this figure made by one of the sisters. There was only one. She wore a black cape and maybe a gold crown.

    Unfortunately, your story “Miraculous Mata Ortiz Pots and Her Potters” is completely false, no fault of your own. You’ve simply embraced the fabricated marketing mythology presented by a few. There is no ancestral history regarding the pottery there connected to the local population. The people of Mata Ortiz are not descendants of any ancient civilization. They were people transported there by industry in the early previous century. The pottery industry itself in Mata grew out of financial need, after the local archeological record was exhausted by looters. These looters were in fact the founding members of this movement, including your ‘Miracle Man.’
