Mata Ortiz, Mexico

Welcome to Mata Ortiz

In a remote river valley on the plains of Northern Mexico, a remarkable ceramic arts revival is taking place. There in the village of Mata Ortiz, approximately 500 potters are leading a renaissance of the area's indigenous pottery traditions. The revival embraces the Casas Grandes and Mimbres civilizations. The contemporary work which parallels the art of indigenous ceramists to the north, the Hopi, Zuni, Acoma Indians and others, has come to be known as Mata Ortiz Pottery.
