- Born in Kansas City, Ken Edwards graduated from the K.C. Fine Arts Institute. He then studied in the Far East where he mastered the use of high-fired glazes and special clays. In the late 1950’s, he moved to Guadalajara, & began experimenting with many types of pottery, collaborating with some of the ceramicists who are, like himself, today considered “National Treasures of Mexico”.
He was also a founding creator and director of production for the pottery line “El Palomar”, with Mr. Fred Meiers who now owns the name “El Palomar”. In particular, his friendship & work with the late Jorge Wilmot is a basis for what we know today as “Ceramica Ken Edwards”. Tonalá has a reputation for producing world-class pottery, with craftsmanship handed down through numerous artisan family lines, Ceramica Ken Edwards is truly one of the leaders in this most special of Mexican cities.
