How can I repair and refinish a Mexican clay pot?

by Jane Doe

I have 3 large "clay" pots from Mexico, purchased locally probably at a local market a long time ago. One broke. Looks like they were made of some sort of concrete/clay blend. Is anyone familiar with this material? The pots are very heavy. Does anyone know how to repair the broken pot? The repair can probably be done with construction adhesive. MOST IMPORTANTLY, and this is where the real EXPERT ADVICE is needed, how does one go about refinishing these things? What products are used? Thank you!
