Mexican Ceramicist Serapio Medrano

Serapio Medrano is a Mexican ceramicist living in Tonala near Guadalajara.

Serapio is the son of Candelario Medrano, a famous ceramicist from the 1970s. Candelario was a pipe-maker who began making sculptures out of the clay he was using.


These pictures of his dad hang in his room.

  1. found this today while searching on Serapio’s name – we just met him and bought his yellow chicken ark at the Premio Nacional de Ceramica the other day in Tlaquepaque. I have work by his Dad and by him when he was much younger and was very glad to meet him. Thanks for your photos and notes.
