Nuca de Tracunhaém
Nuca de Tracunhaém was born in Pernambuco´s countryside in 1937. When he arrived at Tracunhaém, PE, a large ceramic center, it was natural for him to take an interest in this trade. After starting making utilitarian pottery soon began to develop its famous lions that gave it national renown. After 2004, he stopped working due to a disease. He taught his two sons who are his followers until now: Guilherme and Marcos de Nuca who use the same workshop of the father to work.
Master Nuca passed away in 2014.
