Moreover, this is one of the few ones who still make objects from olden times as oil bottles (alcuzas in Spanish), earthenware jars, pitchers, plates, cheese dishes, earthenware bowls or cooking pots as well as reaper's pots, hunter's jars, water jars (azumbres) portable cooks (anafres), birth jars (paridera) or mortars.

Since the opening of the Alfarería Góngora in 1846, five generations have already passed through its potter's wheel. Nevertheless, the passage of time did not have a significant impact because it has known how to fit into the exigencies of the current market.

The good deeds of its potters has transformed the artistic and popular ceramic (oil bottles, pitchers, pots or plates) into pottery with useful and also only purposes. To that end, they have created their own objects as sculptures and vases with figures.

Even if this workshop doesn't have a family tradition in pottery, Francisco Expósico decided to learn the clay art in the workshop of Tito. After knowing the techniques of the ceramics, he decided to open his own pottery workshop where he would develop an important work in research, development and innovation in terms of ceramic ovens free of pollutant emissions.
