In from Spain this weekend is a potter best known simply as Tito, who’s making a return engagement at a Red Bank store that features his earthenware.
Juan Pablo ‘Tito’ Martinez is a third-generation maker of bowls, pitchers and more from the Andalucia region of Spain who won his country’s National Artisan Award in 2008 for keeping alive skills that date back to the Renaissance.
He’ll be at Carter & Cavero, a business specializing in olive oils and vinegars, churning out vases and bowls while fielding questions from anyone interested in his craft.
The demonstrations are scheduled for 11a to 1p and again from 5 to 8p Saturday, and from 3 to 6p Sunday.
Tito is also scheduled to throw down at Carter & Cavero’s new store in Pier Village, Long Branch. He’ll be there tonight from 6 to 9p and again Sunday from 11a to 1p.
