A chip off the old pot 

For generations, the production of ceramics in Tonalá, Mexico has been a family affair, with craft secrets and tools handed from father to son. To see the concept illustrated, you need only to look at one vase depicting a series of M.C. Escher-like hand studies, in which paintbrushes are passed in a circle from the chubby fist of a child to the wizened fingers of an old man.
