Many years ago I purchased this Pilón at a fair in Ponce. The artist who made it is Joe Garcia, who incidentally was also a member of a very popular band that I loved called “Los Concertinos”.
I was so impressed with the quality of this Pilón. The bottom was signed by the artists and dated as either 1981 or 1986, (as it’s a bit blurry now). Yes, it’s that old; nevertheless, it continues to be in perfect condition. What an awesome kitchen tool!
I don’t know if the artist who made this amazing piece is still residing in Ponce or elsewhere in the island. However, if someone knows his whereabouts and show him my post, I would love to say thank you Joe, I have enjoyed this piece of art for so many years and it will stay in my family for more years to come.
