A little while ago a big announcement appeared in the press: “New findings on the island of La Graciosa confirm the passage of the Phoenicians on the Canary Islands.“ A group of geologists found a small stone in their fieldwork. In their analysis it turned out that it was  a small piece of phönizischer ceramics, a finding which contributes important data to the history and in particular to the history of the preb sharp-panic ceramics.
Then grew a modern, advanced Renaissance culture, removing the original culture of the islands,  however,  the ceramic production, because although potters and ceramic makers from Seville came to the islands,  the craft did not assert itself, because they did not know our clay and thought this was not suitable for the turntable. The volcaine nature of the clay was unsuitable to be utilised by their type of machinery.   It was the Canary women who knew the material and the millennium of the old technology which had not developed since the Phoenicians. The Phoenicians pottery for everyday use, produced and even copied European type forms, was being used in the production process. The man played a secondary role, complementary duties were assigned to him like the provision of the material etc. and he  understood nothing  of the real production of the vessels. To change these rules, meant sanction by the community, and the masculinity of the man who dared to question these customs was called into question. To earn more money and to make provision for unforeseen emergencies, they worked themselves  at their own craft. They worked continuously. It is a fact that the feelings of the potter are expressed in the words “ Chipude“ (La Gomera). Two dirtiest occupations which a woman can have are those of the potter and the  Helechera (women who dig out the roots of the fern, for fire to roast Gofio) “. The two most important and determining qualities of the Canary potters are this: The work is explained exclusively by women and is bequeathed  about the motherly line and the pieces are produced with an "urdido" called procedure without the potter disc machine (only with the hands). The 20th century brought about the  import of new materials like glass, iron, porcelain, plastic etc. and with  the use of these materialsand the old production method fell in disuse. With the coming  tourism in 20th century also comes a new branch of industy on the islands. The typical home products are found and a new kind of ceramics originates. From some potters the millennial technology is maintained and for others this is copied or substituted. My work would not be complete if I did not remember the most important man and women of ceramic manufakturing, Guadalupe Niebla – El Cercado (La Gomera) Antonita "la Rubia" – (grain Canaria) Dorotea – (Lanzarote) Rufina (La Gomera) Julianita – Hoya de Pineda (grain Canaria) Adela – La Victoria (Tenerifa) Cela-(La Gomera) Vicente Barrera – (La Gomera) Eufracia – (Tenerifa) And of course also Don Francisco Rodriguez Santana, "Panchito" who  after 3000 years of female supremacy in this area, is the first man for whom his mother provided the craft and worked in his Casa-Cueva (in the rock built house). In Atalaya de Santa Brígida in Grand Canaria,still today  the oldest known technology is taught. From his teaching the numerous young and old have transmitted for their part this knowledge to others with, “ look and  learn “ etc. We hope that our technique does not fall into the anals of history and that this miraculous art of 3000 years or longer is still taught. If we lose our culture what are we left with,  “ but nothing “.

In these three stages the ceramics of the Canary Islands developed. The Phoenicians were good seafarers, they controlled  navigation, were businessmen and created small strategical manufacturing plants,for  example, in Southern Spain for the production of "Garum",  This is a salty paste from fermentation of tuna which they sold as a fish soup. Thus they had a long-lasting product,  rich in protein which was easily transported. From Africa the Phoenicians come to the Canaries where  they established a small factory for salted and smoked goat meat. With the latest excavations one has found cinder of vegetarian origin, ceramic leftovers and goat bones. Other products were probably used as well. Later came the Carthaginians and then the Romans took over  power around the Mediterranean area, and their  management was till III. Cent. virtually continuous. Henceforth the old population of these islands remained practically isolated during 12 centuries and in a modern culture did not exist. Later, in 15. Cent. there appeared French and Spaniards, in each case from the nobility and high-level nobility.
