Andrea Hernández · Clay craft

At the age of 25, Andrea Hernández started working as a potter, making small pigs to sell to local people who owned stores in Pomaire, eventually she started to make other types of handicrafts (salseros, pailas, mates, etc.). Built a stove in her house to cook the clay and then leased a place to sell the products she made.

"One day talking to a neighbor who had an economic relationship with Beas and Tapia, we agreed to send a sample of the piglets that I made. From that moment I began to work, delivering about 450 piglets a month, which was complemented by the work of the house and the leased premises.

Having another child, I stopped leasing local and increased the production of piglets delivered to Beas and Tapia, which added to the work with my sister. Evolving the design, with increase of the quantity delivered and work with exclusive dedication, maintaining the size.

The working and economic relationship has been good, with clear accounts, which means keeping the job until today."
