Gregorio Bracamonte

Learning the ancient stone carving techniques of his culture from his father, Gregorio watched his mother create coiled clay vessels in a time were men didn’t make pottery in San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua.  As a young man Gregorio Bracamonte reached back in time to recreate the designs and process of the Nicoyan ceramic styles.  A teacher to the generations of current potters on San Juan de Oriente, Don Gregorio creates masterful sculptures in the methods of the indigenous ancestors.
