ABOUT THIS OCUMICHO CERAMIC PIECE

This Clay train is an authentic piece of Mexican Folk art crafted in Ocumicho, Michoacán. A place world famous for the quality of its pottery and surreal creations such as devils and other fantastic creatures. This piece in particular was crafted by the talented Sabina Elías, a pottery master of Mexican folk art.

The train is composed by four wagons and 1 cart. You can see that the artist spent time adding each figure its own personality & style. Only a good observer and a dedicated artist  like Sabina can do this. At the top of the bus she placed several characters, such as a man with a backpack, a girl, a boy and one of Ocumicho's famous devils. 

The train destination "Queretaro" is written on the main wagon.  

At our Mexican Folk art Gallery, Carapan; you will find this and more museum quality pieces from Ocumicho for sale!
