Mata Ortiz Pottery

Mata Ortiz Pottery

The Mexican Pueblo of Mata Ortiz is a small village in the state of Chihuahua which has a long history of pottery making, continued to this day. Mata Ortiz pottery is also known as Casa Grandes pottery as the pueblo is located along a tributary of the Rio Casas Grandes, a fertile valley which has long been inhabited by indigenous people. Pottery from this pueblo has seen a revival led by Juan Quezada, a self-taught potter whose skills have inspired many family members and others from the area to create the distinctive pottery shapes and designs which define the pottery from this region. Mata Ortiz pottery has become highly collectible and is both private and museum collections.
