    Juan Mata Ortiz is a small town just three hundred twenty kilometers northwest of the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. There live about 300 families dedicated to pottery, creating the most extraordinary jobs that are currently produced. Each potter makes the piece in the same way in which they were made 600 years ago in the city of Paquimé, however today's potters have incorporated their innovative designs and the development of their own distinctive styles.

    Mata Ortiz Ceramics are made with ancestral techniques that the Paquimé culture used with designs made with lead-free and mineral paints and children's hair brushes. These pieces are made entirely by hand in an approximate period of one to three months and are used in their burning stage poplar tree bark and buñiga (dry cow manure) to achieve the appropriate temperature as well as preserve the style of rustic burning that characterizes them.
