Paper Maché master craftsman of famous alebrijes Felipe Linares!

Paper Maché by the legendary Linares Family has not been available in San Miguel for several years. Their work is widely collected internationally, and is now being represented in San Miguel by Galería Atotonilco.

Many travelers to Mexico are familiar with the friendly monsters and fanciful animals known as alebrijes. There is a wide misconception that they were invented by the wood carvers of Oaxaca, who today carve them in profusion. But in reality, paper maché artist Pedro Linares, father to Felipe Linares invented them.

Ceramic pieces by Ángel Ortiz father and son from Tonalá!

The father and son Mexican folk potters, Ángel Ortiz Gabriel and Ángel Ortiz Arana, created a sensation at the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in mid July.

They were one of the top sellers out of 150 remarkable artists who come together from all over the world once a year for this international gathering of folk artists.

Every purchase helps to support a hard-working, creative family of artists and to keep alive a rich aspect of Mexican culture and history.
