Lenca pottery, Magu Cooperative, Honduras

bev2One of the groups we’ve given technical assistance to is the Magu Cooperativa in La Arada, Honduras near the border with El Salvador. They are keeping the Lenca tradition alive and well with their beautiful pieces using the traditional Lenca clay resist technique. They have grown in to a new studio and workshop. They employ women in the community to make and decorate pieces and have grown to the point that as of last week they were working to fill a 1,200 piece order. We’re proud of the work they produce and look forward to working with them in the future to help them implement some new design ideas they are working on.

      We don’t sell the work of the artisans so you would have to visit the pottery in person. You could try contacting them by phone first.

  1. Kathy,

    I have pieces of this pottery available. I do mission work in Southern Honduras and we purchase a good amount of the pottery from the Lenca’s. Please feel free to email me at for more information. Thanks!
