Please continue to keep in touch, 2020 has just begun and we look forward to all we have in store!
The Paun family is excited to announce the beginning of LAJAMARI Clay Company offering a variety of functional and decorative hand-made ceramics. Our artwork is a reflection of our lives growing up in a small border town in Arizona and has been inspired by the area’s deserts, mountains, and people. If you are in the area please contact us at our studio and take home something to remind you of the area’s beauty and charm.
