This wonderful clay pottery was brought all the way from Totonicapán; that’s near Xela in case you didn’t know, to be sold in Antigua Guatemala and its surrounding villages. Believe or not, many people still use clay pottery to cook. Just the other day while researching about leña, firewood fuel, I learned that some families still only use leña and a poyo, sort of a brick stove, to cook. So, these clay pottery are the perfect complement for cooking with leña, don’t you think?
