While visiting Mata Ortiz, not only did we have the opportunity to meet and purchase pottery from the artists of the village but, John introduced us to the artists that he features in his book called “The Artistry and History of Mata Ortiz”.
All I can say is…..if you go, bring lots of cash! We saw some beautiful pottery.

Above are pictures of pottery that were purchased down at Mata Ortiz. If you can’t get to the village of Mata Ortiz, I invite you to come to our Store at Pueblo Grande Museum or check out our website – www.pueblograndestore.com . We have some wonderful pieces available to purchase.
