Another nationally recognized potter on display here is Nicasio Pajarito, who is considered a master of the canelo genre.
"The techniques that we have here are basically bruñido clay, bandera clay, petatillo clay and canelo clay," Guzmán notes, explaining that these are the four methods most commonly used in Tonalá.

In addition to the bruñido clayware, the flower also appears on pieces in the museum's bandera, petatillo and canelo acquisitions.
It is not like making a barro bruñido piece or petatillo or barro canelo, says Guzmán, talking about three of the main traditional pottery techniques in Tonalá.
Both Guzmán's father and grandfather created ceramics in the canelo style, which is characterized by the shades of canela or cinnamon that it produces in the finished pieces.
