His pottery is hand coiled and polished. His black paint is a mineral pigment used centuries ago, rather than the typically used Guaco or Mountain Bee plant. His red and white paints are natural clay. He fires his pottery in a pit.

Vidal Aguilar is a descendant of the famous Aguilar family of potters dating back to the late 1800s with the famous Aguilar sisters: Felipita Aguilar Garcia and Asuncion Aguilar Caté.
