About the artist, Huaman Paucar Family: The Huaman Paucar Family from Peru is proud heir to an artistic family legacy, 'Our family's journey in the ceramic arts has been influenced by the customs and lifestyles of my village, a village of ceramic artisans. We dress our jars and decorative plates in beautiful designs from ancient Peru. Each carries the powerful, elemental mystery of water and earth. In our home-based workshop we also teach other ceramists in our tradition, and many have stayed to work with us.'
