Pantaleón Panduro National Ceramic Award Museum

Tlaquepaque

If there is a master of clay in Tlaquepaque, it is Pantaleón de la Trinidad Panduro Casillas, the artisan who laid the foundations for Jalisco's pottery. After his death in 1909, his works were forgotten because of lack of signature, since the artist could not read or write.

It was not until 1977 when el Premio Nacional de Cerámica (National Ceramic Award) was created, where many pieces were kept and, as they were not exhibited, the chronicler Bernardo Carlos Casas made a book to record the works, finding among them the pieces of Pantaleón Panduro.

In his honor, the chronicler of the town of Tlaquepaque requested to make a museum, which was inaugurated on November 3, 1997.

The rooms are distributed by technique, by award or by place of origin. There is black and glazed clay from Oaxaca, polychrome clay from Metepec, dotted clay from Michoacán, talavera from Puebla and Tlaxcala, burnished and petatillo from Jalisco and an endless number of pieces from other states.

The Museo del Premio Nacional de la Cerámica Pantaleón Panduro (National Ceramic Award Pantaleón Panduro Museum) is part of Centro Cultural El Refugio (“El Refugio” Cultural Center). It opens from Tuesday to Sunday.
