There were really nice meerschaum works all around the city, so this place also had a lot of them together. We had met an artists and education about the work, of course purchase a lot of different handmade stuff. You have to check every store to meet and see different art works, mostly they have worked on commercial stuff for tourists, but some small stores had very interesting and different work, it was very good.

Sepiolite AKA meerschaum is white clay that is soft to carve, but after exposure to UV or sun light, hardens. Often used to make pipes. As fewer & fewer pipe smokers, they carve other trinkets now. Can't find anything interesting else. Guess I should start smoking?

Small displays of meerschaum for an older world wide event. Too many shops to really call it a museum
