The Pérez brothers are potters and carry out different pieces using traditional techniques, modelling the pieces with their own hands with the aid of the potter wheel. Regarding the field of architecture, the products they manufacture are pinnacles, façade finishings in ceramics and some special types of large tiles.
The work process starts with the extraction from the land of the raw material, which is usually extracted from muddy grounds. Once in the workshop, this soil is blended and sieved. After it hardens, it is taken to the wheel where it is manually modelled. Lastly, the pieces must be air-dried. In the summer, this process lasts for about two to three days. Once dry, the elements are fired in the propane furnaces at a temperature of about 990º-995ºC.
The craft has been passed on from one generation to the next. The Pérez brothers have learnt it from their father who was the one in charge of the workshop before them. Apart from that they have attended courses organized by other ceramists in Madrid and Barcelona, among other cities.
They own the certificate of being Master Craftsmen since May 2009.
They have carried out some demonstrations and some courses in the area of Zafra, Badajoz.
