FOLK ART 

Folk art is the term we give to those objects made by anonymous craftsmen and women. These objects can be furniture, or ceramics, they can be tools, carvings, and textiles: what connects them is the context in which they were made, their place in everyday life. As the writer Octavio Paz said of a ceramic pitcher “its beauty is allied with the liquid it contains and the thirst it quenches.....a basket, a bowl -- handsome objects not in spite of but because of their usefulness."
