Ceramica Polopo is a family run business located on the shores of Lake Atitlan in San Antonio, Polopo, Solola, Guatemala. The Perez family makes unique animals, coffee cups, vases and other ceramic items. They are high fired for durability and decorated with lead free glazes. The Perez family learned the pottery skills from a North American, Ken Edwards, who came to Guatemala looking for a source of clay. Mr. Edwards was a well known potter in Mexico. San Antonio, Polopo was where he settled. He created the animals and other pieces and taught the Perez family how to make and decorate them. As the family learned the new skill they began to develop their own decorating styles.
