"Their imagery evokes Op Art, M.C. Escher and computer chips in combination with plumed serpents and macaws."~~William Gilbert
The village of Juan Mata Ortiz is located in the northern part of Chihuahua, Mexico, less than 100 miles from the Mexico-U.S. border. In this small village of approximately 2000 people, a truly remarkable artistic tradition has developed in the last 30 years.
The potters of Mata Ortiz combine both intellectual and aesthetic elements. They have re-created their ancestral symbols as well as shown a refined creation of original and creative contemporary art.
The Mata Ortiz Collection of Mary Frances presently on display at the Comfort Crockery shows an impressive number of pieces. There are 10 in the front of the store and 67 pieces of pottery in a special exhibit in the back of the gallery. They are not only on view for the public, but they can be purchased as well. If you'd like more information, call 830.995.5299 or e-mail Roci at info@comfortCrockery.com.
