Mata Ortiz Pottery

Mata Ortiz is a small village in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, less than 100 miles from the US-Mexico border. The pueblo has a population of approximately 2,000 people and is within the municipality of Casa Grandes in a wide fertile valley, which has long been inhabited by indigenous people. The ancient ruins of Casas Grandes are located nearby. Each pot is handbuilt, incised or carved by the artist and fired using cottonwood tree bark.
All proceeds benefit both the artists and our nonprofit mission.
