The Nicaraguan village of San Juan de Oriente is less than ten square blocks, and more than 80 percent of the families who live there are involved in making and selling pottery. Archaeological records suggest that local families once offered clay vessels full of food and drink to the spirit of the Masaya volcano three millennia ago. Because of this pottery tradition, the village was known as San Juan de los Platos—Saint John of the Platters—during the Spanish Conquest.
