Darwing is a young up-and-coming artist in San Juan. He and his wife operate
a small workshop out of their home with one kick wheel and a dirt floor.
He produces finely detailed geometric designs and commonly includes two
different geometric patterns on a single piece. He uses brilliant oxide paints
to decorate his pieces with great attention to detail of his geometric designs.
Darwing has been producing pottery for the past 15 years. They have no other
employees other than their two children, ages 15 and 17. At this point the son
and daughter are just beginning to help with the production of pottery and are
learning the art from Darwing. He in turn learned his skill from his parents,
which is typical for most artists in San Juan. While Darwing produces a variety
of traditional pieces, he specializes in geometric designs.
Each purchased pottery art piece made by our featured artists includes our Certificate of Authenticity verifying that the item was produced and hand-selected from their workshop.
