"Mata Ortiz Pottery and Vessels"
SouthWind Gallery says "bienvenido" to an exclusive exhibit of beautiful handmade Mexican pottery. This exhibit and sale of pottery offers something for the collector or the generous gift giver. These pieces would make wonderful Christmas presents.
Mata Ortiz pottery is one of the finest and most innovative ceramics in the world. The small village of Mata Ortiz, located in the Sierra Madres region of Mexico, is known as a major pottery mecca with 400 artists living and working in this town of 2,000 people.
The artists of Mata Ortiz create their pots or "ollas" following centuries-old methods and, with the pots as their canvas, incorporate ancestral symbols from pre-Hispanic ceramics as well as their own creativity and spirit to conceive an artistic language that is unique.
