Hi, I am Francisco Martínez the founder of Taller Pitao Copycha
I have always liked archaeological pieces. I was always struck by those finishes, the colors, and the pieces that our grandparents made,. That's where the idea of making the pieces the gray, black, red, but in natural clay came from, without using chemicals or so many colors that were introduced to Mexico later.
This taller was born from there--from wanting to make some finishes more attached to the color of the clay. That's how the idea came about. At the beginning my work was more sculpture, not so much utilitarian. I always liked making figures more. I have always liked that type of work, but it also has its disadvantages, it sells very slowly,--not everyone buys a sculpture. So, for me, what I sell right now and I always have work are utilitarian things, which are plates, cups, pieces for the kitchen.
