ABOUT US

We are collectors and enthusiasts of the objects that have a manual and creative origin.

We are true believers of the bond that exists between the one that creates, the one that shares, and the one that consumes; we recognize manual work as an example of kindness and integrity.

We are devoted to dinner table conversations.

We practice common rituals and try to highlight the important details that these hide.

We are unconditionally attached to a busy table and a well served plate.

We are supporters of collective work, empathy and diversity.

We are also a Mexican business that produces and distributes artisanal ceramic pieces, handmade in Jalisco and its surroundings.

We started a few years ago, and since then we have been immersed working in the ceramic world. Its versatility, shapes and different processes, made us develop an ability to track and collect a great variety of pieces made by different artisans and workshops.

The result is a big recopilation of authentic artisanal models and finishes. Each piece presents peculiar characteristics that capture the interests of the ones that are looking to enhance their culinary work, differentiate the style of their projects or that simply resonate with traditional work and manual techniques as much as we do.

Designer Michele de Alba started her brand Al Centro Ceramica focusing initially on wholesale ceramic and clay productions for hotels and restaurants, connecting the work of different local workshops to be able to offer a greater variety of products to clients looking for artisan ceramics for their businesses.

With time, she decided to took a turn by also starting to develop her own designs and working hand in hand in smaller workshops with families of artisans who have developed very particular styles of ceramic production, mixing different pottery traditions from the Guanajuato and Jalisco.

Enthusiastic about the manual and creative potential of clay, stoneware and the infinite possibilities different glazes afford, Michele is a true believer of the bond that exists between designer, maker, and consumer. Every piece by Al Centro Ceramica celebrates and recognizes manual work as an example of kindness and integrity, manifested in the collective efforts of all those involved in making it.
