Arrazola y San Bartolo

Tuesday we took a day-long van tour (Monte Alban addressed in prior post) with a small group of Mexican tourists to a studio of alebrijes, a form of wood-carved, painted figurines famous for their colorful, detailed work; and a second studio in San Bartolo Coyotepec to see unique black pottery. The man in the third photo is 80 years old, the president of his village and highly skilled in making ceramics.
