We have a few Mata Ortiz pieces still available for purchase. This is a special fundraiser benefiting our local non-profit, Border Justice Project. Prices have been reduced – these will make wonderful gifts!



The Border Justice Project (BJP) provides shelter, food, clothing, toys, medicine, and care for thousands of migrants in Deming, NM, and Palomas (Chih.), Mexico.
This volunteer group accepts donations and monetary support from individuals and is grateful for the donation of this beautiful pottery.

Mata Ortiz pottery is a derivation of the Mogollon pottery found in and around the archeological site of Casas Grandes (Paquimé) in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It is named after the modern town of Mata Ortiz,  near the archeological site. The style was developed by Juan Quezada who learned on his own to recreate the ancient pottery and then went on to update it. By the mid-1970s, Quezada was selling pottery and teaching family and friends to make it.

This fundraiser is part of Give Grandly. 100% of any purchase of Mata Ortiz pottery will go to the Border Justice Project and will be matched by a generous BJP supporter.


We are thrilled to welcome Diana Bloomfield back to teach a Tri-color Gum Dichromate workshop!
