Alberto and Adriana Díaz de Cossío are local legends among Mexico's community of ceramic artists. They lead Mexico City's Experimental Ceramics Workshop (Taller Experimental de Cerámica) in Coyoacán.
Throughout Adriana's childhood, the family hosted a number of Japanese artists who interned at the workshop; they have also travelled throughout Asia. At the same time, the family was an avid learner of pre-Hispanic culture, travelling also extensively throughout Mexico.
As a result, they create ceramics that are rooted in pre-Hispanic traditions yet have significant Asian influence. You may see stone-ware created at this workshop in some of the best restaurants in Latin America.
