OUR STORY IS OUT. Thank you to Alya Honasan of the Philippine Daily Inquirer for the wonderful feature on our Casa San Pablo clay storytellers. The story captured our journey so well, tracing from my days as an editor and publishing executive to give all that up to be an innkeeper and clay artisan.
In the article, Alya wrote: “Among An’s favorite subjects are the Virgin Mary, in several incarnations, including her favorite, Our Lady of Guadalupe. There are still storytellers, and tablets featuring colorful processios or village regulars, like a rice or vegetable vendor. She even incorporates some figures with potted plants. For Christmas, her belen comes in different sizes and settings, festooned with parol or with a church as backdrop
“The Filipino flavor is unmistakeable. ‘The people of San Pablo are such great storytellers, and the processions here are so grand. It’s always a great opportunity for families to come together, and this value for family heritage is one of the things I truly love about this place.'”
When you come to Casa San Pablo, make sure to drop by our clay storyteller shop and experience for yourself the fun we are talking about. Or take a look at our online catalogue here. And our blog here.
