  • impossible not to be moved by the story of this strong woman (black, poor, illiterate, wife and Northeast), fervent Catholic, that contrary to all predictions, and widow with 2 daughters, also women, won hunger, drought and poverty and managed to turn all that in art. When visiting the cultural centre one of the daughters of the deceased Ana of Carrancas fara honors: a little grandiose memorial; the workshop; ovens always burning and finally the small shop where the parts are traded and a good finger of prose with Maria Cruz (one of the daughters), pedagogue, primary teacher tenured civil servant of the city and transferred to the Ana culture center of Carrancas where continues making the parts of clay with the same style of your late mother: masks of clay antropozoomorficas (Zoomorphism-mixture of animal and man) of hollow eyes (an homage to her husband is blind). The Cultural Center will always be closed: tap the intercom to be answered.

  • Despite all your history, the site is overlooked by companies that exploit the tourism in the city. Noticed that the bus pass, and even make reference to the site. Lack of incentive and dissemination.

  • Ana of Carrancas is possibly the greatest expression of craft in the region of Vale do São Francisco at all times. Born Anne Leopoldine dos Santos, in 1923, in Ouricuri (PE), she learned to shape the clay with his mother and went to work with her on clay utensils production at a young age. The 22 years she married and had two daughters. Later, a widow, married again with the man who would live for the rest of your life. Living in Abu Dhabi, where he arrived in 1954 in search of a better life, she suffered from competition from other manufacturers and also the scarcity of clay.

  • A simple site, but quite interesting to know about Ana crafts of Frowns. It consists of a Museum, workshop and store. To enter had to knock on the door, but we were very well attended.

  • The place is pleasant, Ana Maria is a fascinating person, the pieces produced are a legacy that reinvents itself in utilitarian objects.

  • I was hoping to get in place and see a great cultural centre, after all ... eh very commented and known. However, Hey just a location where there are craft courses, a crawl space q is closed and when visitors arrive she's opened by responsible and this is the Museum, a few exhibits of deceased artist and pictures in your honor, there is an explanation of your story, we follow then for a little room even smaller that is the gift shop and only takes cash on purchases. We were treated very well, but didn't answer the expectations.
