Mexico-City native Kythzia “K” Barrera has been on a mission to elevate traditional Mexican pottery back to its rightful place: to be seen and cherished as art, not as a simple object to use in your home.
And she’s done an incredible job. Her company’s fairtrade, artisanal pottery is in world-renowned museums, hotels, and restaurants.
In this episode, K shares how she was able to shift perceptions around Mexican pottery and create a brand that is “art-status.”
This conversation is perfect for you if you are a purpose-driven entrepreneur who is struggling to gain traction with your artisan-made product or if you are trying to shift perceptions around a certain product to elevate its status.

-How to shift perceptions and elevate your product to art-status
