GUADALUPE AGUILAR GUERRERO (the late) and her daughters, TERESA and JUANA LORENZO (Santa María Atzompa)

Teresa and Juana Lorenzo carry on the tradition of their talented mother, creating lovely traditional pieces in the work for which Santa María Atzompa has long been known: green-glazed pottery referred to as “loza verde.” These pieces are designed with utilitarian purposes in mind: cooking, serving, displaying flowers, holding candles, and the like.  Guadalupe especially liked to make pitchers for mezcal (some in the shape of roosters through whose beaks the liquid pours), bowls for making chocolate and “atole” (a corn- based drink), salsa dishes and pitchers. Teresa and Juana Lorenzo create their own styles in the same type of ceramic work.  Teresa specializes in vases and pitchers of various sizes, and Juana Lorenzo in salsa dishes many of which are decorated with birds.
