I am a sculptor and am wondering if there is a place to buy clay and if there are any kilns in zihua or troncones. Many thanks.

There are no ceramicists in the area that I know of. Much clay work is being done in the villages in Michoacán.

There is a tile and brick "factory" that tours stop at outside of Zihuatanejo.
They demo making roof tiles by hand with clay slurry and mold. Low fire kiln fired with coconut husks I think.
