Ken Edwards is an American potter who went to Mexico looking for adventure and found his calling. He settled in Tonala, Jalisco, land of potters. In the 1950s he met Jorge Wilmot (Mexico's most outstanding contemporary ceramicist) and the two became pioneers in the introduction of stoneware techniques to Mexico. In the 1960s, Edwards met entrepreneur Arthur Kent who financed the establishment of "El Palomar" and who exported the product to the American market where they were a great success. The two men collaborated for years.

Ken Edwards sold his part of the business in Tonala in the 1970s. He moved to Guatemala, to the shores of Lake Atitlan where he has trained a new group of potters under the name Ceramica Polopo.

Edwards’ ceramics have a blue-gray background and delicate decorations with Oriental influence. El palomar produced elaborate bowls, jars, flower vases, and decorative figures. This pear shaped plate is a great example of the line.

Plate is in great vintage condition, with no cracks, chips or crazing. Faint signature: El Palomar - Mexico - KE. I have no information as to the date of production. Measurements: 10" long by 8 1/2" wide. It sits 1 1/2" tall.
