Contents/Summary

Summary
Traditionally, thousands of artisans in Mexico use lead in their glazed pottery, not knowing the damage that this toxic element has on their health. Herlinda, an indigenous Purépecha potter, is one of the few craftswomen who uses alternative lead-free glazes. Now that she has ensured the health of her family, she faces the difficult task of finding a market for her impressive pieces. But this does not dampen her dreams of her shop thriving and her brothers returning from the United States to rejoin the family tradition.
