GREGORIO BRACAMONTE - San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua    
  Indigenous Ceramic Art :: NOW AVAILABLE
Prolific ceramic artist, Gregorio Bracamonte, known as “el maestro”, was born in Nicaragua and resides in San Juan de Oriente.
The ceramic making process in San Juan de Oriente remains traditional, as it used to be many generations ago. The pieces are hand painted using mineral materials from the earth instead of glaze. Sap of the local Mora tree is used to make a dark pigment. Shine is accomplished through the traditional technique of stone rubbing. The works are baked in brick kilns heated by firewood and closed with cobblestones.


Additional works found in the White House Collection, the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, the Nicaraguan Embassy in D. C., as well as the collections of dignitaries, heads of state, and private collectors worldwide.
