Although Innovating Tradition has come a long way, there are still plenty of exciting things to come according to Kythzia Barrera; a book titled “The Quickfire Wizards” that tells the story beyond what we conceive as traditional pottery and a ambitious research project about biomass fuel ovens for the artisans in Oaxaca (currently under the first prototypes stage). As Kythzia says, “success comes from collaboration, without it this wouldn’t be possible. Besides, it’s beautiful to share the achievements of a project that brings benefits to so many people”. The Innovating Tradition project is a great example of how design can become a bridge between designers and artisans, and drive social innovation in Mexico.
