Description

Mata Ortiz pottery is highly recognized as a very innovative and one of the finest in the world. Mata Ortiz is a town in the north of Mexico that has a big portion of its population making a living from making ceramics. It all started in the 1980s when Juan Quezada Celado started to self-teach the century-old Paquime tradition of pottery and through  out the years he taught family members and neighbors expanding the handcraft to the whole town. Before ceramics, there were only seasonal agricultural jobs, now, about two thirds of the populations have indirect employment through these outstanding creations.
