In this ceramic piece from Mata Ortiz, the Day of the Dead is represented, one of the most important traditions in Mexico, where our ancestors are honored. In this case, the first ceramists are honored, who laid the foundation for subsequent generations in Chihuahua.
Juan Mata Ortiz is a town in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, located about 35 kilometers southwest of Casas Grandes, near the ruins of Paquimé and Colonia Juárez. It is famous for the pottery produced in it.
One of the techniques they use is that of total reduction and smoothing, a low-temperature technique, or that of graphite, which is using it in two ways: as a majority part of a slip and applied in dry powder on the already burnished pieces. In both cases, they let the pieces dry and then burnish them again.
When you touch a finished pot, you can feel the fingers of the artist who shaped it inside.
