Our Mata Ortiz ornaments are made by Rosy Mora. Mata Ortiz is not a tribal affiliation but a town in the area of the the northern province of Chihuahua where the native people have revived a pottery tradition that dates back to the pre-Columbian era. This tradition was long extinct in the region until the 1970's when villager Juan Quezada was inspired by the ancient pot shards that littered the area to embark on a quest to decipher the techniques used by these ancient artists. Through trial and error he developed a new, contemporary style of pottery utilitzing ancient techniques. Mata Ortiz pottery is still hand formed without the use of the wheel. It is decorated with natural pigments and fired in the ground. Decorations range from complex geometric to ancient Mimbres designs.
