Artistic ceramic workshop. Barrofertil is a ceramic workshop formed by the couple Javier Agüero and Kristina Kennedy. Javier has a long history of clay working and his English wife has recently joined forced in the art. They mix different clays to form the perfect blend for their work and use mainly traditional construction techniques – in rolls and modeled by hand. They work with natural pigments –curioles -which have been used for 2000 years in the ceramics of the Chorotega culture, but which they use in nontraditional ways! They use wood fired kilns built by Javier to fire and smoke some of their works.Their commercial pieces include masks, miniature pots, flower pots with faces and for cactus, tiles, tripods and much more. A selection can be seen in the album “Catalogo 2014” Barrofertil also produces works of art which in recent years have been included in the National Open Ceramic 2011; “Animalistica” in 2012; Exhibition of ceramic tile in the Supreme National Elections building in August 2013; Elit Tile- World’s Ceramic Tile triennial- in the Museum of Modern Art (MOM) in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic; and most recently the tripods of Javier and of Kristina were chosen as winners in the contest organized by the Museums of the Central Bank “ Pre-Columbian ceramics in our present day imagery” and will soon be on display in the Gold Museum in San Jose. Barrofertil offers workshops for small groups and offers accommodation in a small equipped guesthouse for visitors who wish to share a while in the peace of the Nicoya peninsula.
