Artisan: Walter Jose Acosta

Artisan Walter Jose Acosta Jose Acosta says, 'Our ancestors crafted beautiful and complex pieces with only their hands as tools, without the kind of technology we have nowadays,' Jose Acosta says. 'Through their work they expressed all that they saw and wondered about, their thoughts and beliefs. I feel that Peruvian ceramic art is a way to communicate with our ancestors and to keep them alive. Believe it or not, some archeologists have been fooled by my work! That's because of the aging process I use with my pieces.'
