"Entire families work as pottery makers in the suburb of Chanenetla in the city of Puebla. The men carry the clay for making the pottery and knead it, and the women and children together mold jars, flour pots, crocks and many other different kinds of pieces. The artistic ability and skill of these people has been handed down for generations. The workshop of these pottery makers is also their home, for the family hearth is under the same roof as the wheel and the space where the women and children decorate the turned pieces. This lithograph depicts the workers who for many hours without rest kneads with his feet the white clay which will later be turned into many pottery objects."

"En el barrio de Chanenetla de la ciudad de Puebla, hay familias enteras que trabajan en Ia alfarería. Los hombres adultos adarrean y amasan el barro; éstos, así como las mujeres y niños, colectivamente moldean jarros, cazuelas, macetas y otras diversas piezas. La habilidad evidente de estas familias artesanas proviene de generaciones. El taller de estos alfareros es al mismo tiempo su habitación. Al lado del torno o del sitio donde mujeres y niños decoran las piezas fabricadas, está Ia cama o bien el fogón. La litografía, muestra al hombre que por horas enteras, sin descansar amasa con sus pies Ia arcilla que ha de servir para Ia fabricación de múltiples objetos de alfarería."
