About Innovando la Tradición

Innovando la Tradicion is a creative platform where artisans, designers and artists share skills, knowledge and stories to rethink and honor the ceramic traditions of Oaxaca. We offer services to potters and pottery communities in Oaxaca that support the development of their trade.

We are a multidisciplinary non-profit and a sustainable design project. It arises from an interest to work collectively and learn, through our skills and those of others. We want to build bridges, explore the common ground between art, design and folk art, and rethink how they operate and interact. We use collaborative design strategies, anthropological methodologies, narrative therapy and other social sciences.

Our goal is to elevate the symbolic, cultural and commercial value of pottery in the world of today. We foster innovation through experimental workshops and technical training, we search for sustainable technological changes and promote pottery through a variety of means.
