Founded in 1966 by Pedro Antonio Bello and his wife Fabiola Rendón, Cerámicas El Dorado is a family run ceramics workshop located in the town of El Carmen del Viboral in the Antioquia region of Colombia. Having completed his masters degree in ceramics in Argentina, Don Pedro Antonio fulfilled his ambition of opening his own studio in El Carmen, a town already known as a center of excellence for hand painted floral ceramics. Today, El Dorado is one of the most prestigious workshops in the region, where Doña Fabiola with her children and grandchildren carry the strong family legacy forward with their innovative design aesthetic.
