Casa Catalina
Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Catherine the proud proprietor of Casa Catalina is a long time resident of Todos Santos for almost 20 years. She has been quite an entrepreneur having had organic farms, organic produce distribution, a beauty salon, is an artist and supports local pottery workers who are still making pottery using the original methods. Catherine is very personable and has lots of stories to tell.

Casa Catalina is the exclusive distributor of very unique local hand worked pottery made by a select few local artists living in age old conditions on small ranches in the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. Catherine goes into the mountains herself, explores and personally selects the pottery from the elderly crafts people. The 5 potters are from the original areas that made this pottery, not from Candelaria, and still produce work using generations old techniques digging the clay out of the ranch land, hand forming and finishing the pottery and firing it in traditional wood fired ovens.


The finished product is very unique and special. The pottery pieces are rustic but delicately formed in classic simple traditional shapes and are ideal to be used as cookware. Just treat them properly and they can last a lifetime all the while you are deriving an elementary pleasure cooking in them and serving on them.

The store also has some of Catherine's art on display as well as a few other items of interest including some Huichol art, angels, local organic preserves, damiana and some exclusive semi precious jewelry pieces.

Casa Catalina is closed for summer vacation from August until October 15 when it will be open Monday through Friday from 11am to 5pm.
