In 2013 a proposal presented by Dr. David Aceves Barajas met all the criteria and the National School of Ceramics was born; giving life to a long-held dream of governments, politicians, intellectuals and artists dating back to the Mexican Revolution.
The National School of Ceramics offers workshops and classes at the present time but a full formal education curriculum offering Bachelors, Masters and P.H.D. degrees in the near future. Headquarters are in Tapalpa, Jalisco, a municipality with abundant deposits of high quality clay and one of Mexico’s Magical Towns that are well worth getting to know.
The campus is being built on the grounds of the Hacienda de la Media Luna (Half Moon Hacienda) referenced in Juan Rulfo’s first novel. It will include residential space, dining room, classrooms, workshops, gallery, museum and retail areas for art supplies and equipment as well as finished ceramics. It will be a world class and unique project in its category.
