Spearheaded by Juan Quezada, the revival of traditional Casas Grandes and Paquime pottery has now become the unique Mata Ortiz style. Characterized by intricate and elegant abstract and zoomorphic designs, the artisanship of Mata Oriz designs is a testimony of the perseverance of an entire town. with over 40 potters represented, the exhibition highlights the gracious donation of Barry and Maria King to the Museum of early examples of Mata Ortiz ceramics and recent works on loan courtesy of Flor de Barro Gallery.
