Felix Tissot was a Mid-century French ceramist. He won recognition for his furniture and pottery design in California; however, his arrival in Mexico and this particular Fantasia line, defined his career. After traveling across some states in the country weighing the relevance of indigenous crafts, he settled in Taxco, Guerrero. His art production was characterized by the collaboration of craftspeople from Ameyaltepec. Each piece is a hand-painted original work of art. This collaboration led to his famed Fantasía line. A decade long exhibit of this work, The Eternal and the Modern emphasizes the history of artistic collaborations and reconsiders the narrative of the term “cultural appropriation”.
