Vidal Aguilar (1972 – ) is a member of the famous Aguilar family of potters dating back to the 1800s.
Vidal Aguilar makes some of the largest polychrome ollas at Santo Domingo in the Aguilar family tradition.
His pottery is hand coiled and polished. His black paint is a mineral pigment used centuries ago, rather than the
typically used Guaco or Mountain Bee plant. His red and white paints are natural clay. He fires his pottery in a
pit rather than a kiln.
