Tlaquepaque's Regional Ceramic Museum

Tlaquepaque

Since times immemorial, clay has been present in the history of Mexico and of all humanity. The crafts of this material are something that distinguishes the Pueblo Mágico of Tlaquepaque (Magical Town of Tlaquepaque), Jalisco.

On the crowded Independencia Walkway is el Museo Regional de la Cerámica de Tlaquepaque (Tlaquepaque's Regional Ceramic Museum), within the old house of rich landowner Francisco Velarde, better known as “el Burro de Oro” (the Golden Donkey). It opened its doors in 1954 with the objective of preserving and promoting indigenous art, as well as ceramics.

Its rooms tell the history and characteristics that exist around the techniques of mud such as: cinnamon, petatillo, burnished and flag, same that are used by the jaliscienses artisans in each one of their works. There is also a space dedicated to blown glass and Huichol art.

As part of its collection was recreated a Mexican kitchen from the late 19th century that consists of a stone parapet covered with brick where charcoal stoves burned.
