Hello to those living in Guayaquil, and neighboring towns. I was wondering if it is possible to get into contact with a local potter.
I am working with a group of students from Clarkson University in the US, and Engineers Without Borders. We are hoping to bring clean water to a nearby town, and have chosen a clay pot filtration system. The only problem that we have in implementing this is having a method to fire the pots.
We think that the best way to do this would be to have a local potter fire the pots for the townspeople. We have it set up so that there would be no start up costs to the potter, and they could then recieve an income off the pots there after, perhaps even expanding to other nearby towns with similar circumstances
Any information that could help us find a potter, or another available method of firing pots would be extremely helpful.
