Aguilar Sisters


The four famous Aguilar sisters were born to Isaura Alcántar Díaz; the innovator of colorful decorative indigenous figures of everyday life. These figures imaginatively capture the daily activities and passions of pueblo life.  The four sisters, Josefina, Guillermina, Irene and Concepción (and son Jesús) carry on her famous tradition.

Each has adapted their own unique style within this genre.  The hand formed and painted clay work of the Aguilar family, which now includes children and grandchildren of each, is unmistakably charming.  The entire family lives in Ocotlán de Morelos, just outside of the city of Oaxaca.
