Pottery craft--Mexico; San Antón (Cuernavaca, Mexico)
The principal contemporary pottery-making techniques which are recognized for the Mexican area are; handmodeling, building, molding with convex molds, molding with concave molds, molding with concave "vertical halves" molds, modeling with revolving "moldes," and wheel-throwing (Foster 1955: 3) . We can attribute this diversity of pottery-making techniques to the blending of pre-Conquest native practices with those of the postConquest Spanish.
