Amigos Pottery

Off to the side of the Dallas Farmer’s Market is a store that I am very familiar with. It sits on a sharp corner and has a tin-roofed building and high rows of steel shelving outside. It’s a Mexican import extravaganza called Amigos Pottery. They have a factory in Mexico and produce a bewildering array of artwork and such – pottery, statuary, chimeneas, wall hangings, welded steel, fountains, and mixed combinations of all of these.

Long ago I bought a chimenea there – I’ve bought some planters, and we’ve purchased a bunch of decorative stuff over the years. Today, my friend and I wandered around with our cameras – shooting in the cramped aisles full of… all sorts of stuff.

Big digital SLRs always attract attention and a guy working there asked me for copies of my photos for his website.

I’ll send him an email as soon as I can find what I did with his business card.

    • Thanks. One cool thing is that my photos don’t show that there are hundreds of the statues lined up – no two exactly alike. Closeups are the only photos possible because of the cramped quarters.

  1. I love that place. I’ve bought my share of stuff from them, as well. I still have one piece, an odd terracotta urn with fruit that actually survived the fire. I should go back there…
