At the age of 14, he learned the local techniques of his town San Jerónimo Siacayoapilla, a well-known town in the area for manufacturing various utensils for daily use such as: molcajetes, jugs, pots, comales, etc. Much of his applied knowledge in his pottery is empirical. In 1975 he began an artistic transition with the arrival of a Japanese potter named Fumio Takahara in Oaxaca which began an apprenticeship over several years which cultivated a practice of High Temperature Ceramics.
