Martin Talavera

Martin Talavera’s love of pottery started when he was a small child living in Lima, Peru. His uncle owned and operated a pottery

studio in Lima. It was there that Martin at the age of 8 years old discovered his love of pottery. He even learned to dig up and refine his own clay! His enthusiasm grew as he got older and as a young adult he began to teach pottery. Martin has always loved to share his passion for clay  with others. In 2008 Martin’s dream came true when he opened The Clay Pot. Here he combines his love of pottery and teaching  and continues to share his passion with others.
