We are getting ready to leave for Managua to get our artisans ready for the 2012 Nicaraguan Pottery orders. Our San Juan de Oriente Pottery should be especially exciting this coming year. We will be working with the artisans on many new Nicaraguan pottery designs that we will hopefully be ready to present by February or March. It takes about 4 months from the time we start a design idea until we can acually see the finished production pieces. But its so much fun seeing the San Juan de Oriente artisans get excited as their creative ideas start to flow.
