    This is a nice image of what appears to be Andres Mena’s kiln in the barrio of Mejorado in Ticul.I was checking to see if any of the workshops in Ticul were advertising on the internet and I came across this. Very nice.

    You might be interested in my recently published book that documents the changes in the population of potters, raw materials, demand, distribution,fabrication technology between 1965 and 1997. There are other images of kilns there with notation of the changes that have occurred since 1965.

    2008 Social Change and the Evolution of Ceramic Production and Distribution in a Maya Community. University Press of Colorado, Boulder.

    This is an academic, not a popular, book, and will not appeal to many, but it does have a lot of information on the history of pottery production in Ticul during the last third of the 20th century, and it does have about 90 images of changes and illustrations of the practice of pottery making in Ticul
