Quinua Ceramics are human creations where the advancement of its
technology, conception and decoration is determined solely by its maker.
Although fragile when stricken, ceramic is a durable good. Ancient
illiterate cultures are studied through the ceramic objects found at
archeological sites not only in Peru but around the globe. Quinua is a
small Andean town and considered to be a potters' town, long known for
the production of ceramics. Unfortunately, the violence that prevailed
in the region during the 1980s relocated many of the craftsmen near
Lima, Peru where they continue working on their craft.
