Ricardo Carrás Trallero

Ricardo Carrás Trallero learned the trade of being a potter from his father Antonio in the 1920's. The techniques used at that time in Huesca (Aragon, Spain) did not differ much from those used in the fourteenth century. 
The work with clay began with the digging up of clay in areas close to the city.
Ricardo opened his own shop in 1942 where he worked until his retirement in 1981. In January 1979, he received his first diploma from the Culture Committee of the College of Architects of Aragon and Rioja, in recognition of his work on behalf of the Aragonese Culture. 
Some parts of the work of Ricardo Carrás are presented in "El Museo de Alfarería Tradicional Aragonesa” in Huesca.
