Valenzuela Rep. Wes Gatchalian is taking every opportunity to promote the craftsmanship and creativity of artists from the city.

In a one minute, 50-second video, Gatchalian shared the beautiful ceramic pieces handcrafted by artists from Everjade Ceramic Arts.

The lawmaker said Everjade has 18 workers who make simple ceramic into a work of art.

“They are able to duplicate each piece with precision and can produce at the average 200–300 of the items per week,” he said.

Taking pride in the city’s pool of talents, Gatchalian said: “I am a proud Valenzuelano. Because my pride is in my heritage, herewith I share the craftmanship and a genuine labor of love from a Valenzuela City homegrown company that produces the highest quality of ceramic pieces.”

Everjade Ceramic Arts’ factory is located at 7 Industrial Road Karuhatan, Valenzuela City.
