Zaida is the sister or Lester Perez and has her workshop directly
next door to her brother. She works with her husband to
produce a range of utilitarian pottery, but has a strong interest
in pre-Colombian designs. She has worked on reproducing a
number of exacting replicas of ancient ceremonial pieces.
She learned her skill from her aunt and has been producing pottery for the past 28 years. She has had her own store for the past 10 years. Zaida has two children, ages 5 and ten, but neither of them are old enough to help in the business at this time.
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.
