Some of our most unique and eye catching pieces from our recent Mata Ortiz show. Mata Ortiz is a small pottery village in Mexico where a variety of talented artists have helped to revitalize the local economy with their specialized skills. The Mata Ortiz method is derived from the old world methods utilized from a nearby ancient pueblo where this particular style of pottery originated. The modern renditions are very much still inspired from these old ways. All of the clay is hand collected and made, the pots themselves are completely hand- coiled with no wheel. Hand painted and fired as well. Intricate and flawless, please Click on the images for details and to Enlarge
