Rhoda Lurie

Mata Ortiz Pottery is a Casas Grandes renaissance, patterned after the ancient pottery yet with its own creative craftsmanship and unique designs. A self-taught potter, Juan Quezada - who lived by the Palanganas River near the ancient ruins of Casas Grandes, in today's northern Chihuahua, Mexico - founded a native art movement inspired by the same traditions that died out around the time of the Spanish conquest.

There are now almost 300 Mata Ortiz artisans producing amazing pots. These one-of-a-kind vessels can be viewed in the realm of art.


With each purchase, receive a free copy of Rhoda’s book: Discovering the Magic Pots of Mata Ortiz. Beautiful photographs of the potters in their studios and depicting in detail the Casas Grandes story and history.
