While the exterior of this tiny shop is easy to miss, Dona Ernestinaâ€™s pottery, ranging from tiny teapots to foot-tall Virgin Mary figures, is definitely worth examining. Using a technique developed by indigenous peoples of the region, Ernestina continues a century and a half-old family tradition. If youâ€™re lucky, and ask nicely, the artisan might let you take a peek out back, where she sculpts and fires her work over an open flame to give it its characteristic black hue. Small trinkets cost about 2 USD, while larger pieces can cost 10 USD. Pieces here are half the price of similar ones at the shop in Parque Ruben Dario.
Located one and a half blocks east ofParque Morazan.
