News-Antique.com - Oct 12,2008 - http://www.Native-PotteryLink.com, a department of Aboriginals: Art of the First Person, is offering all of its Mata Ortiz pottery at 30% reduction. Mata Ortiz is a village in Northern Mexico with a strong and growing reputation for outstanding hand-made pottery. The thin walls and pinpoint painting marks the pottery of these artisans as masterful.
Aboriginals/Pueblo Pottery became engaged with the exquisite pottery of mata Ortiz as a natural extension of its involvement with authentic, hand-made pottery
Native American Indian puebloans.
The residents of the Village of Mata Ortiz have a tradition of pottery making that takes its inspiration from the pre-historic days of Casas Grandes. Initially rather crude , their production has now evolved into some of the most elegant and accomplished work in the field of native pottery. Virtually all are signed by the artists that create them, and there is a vital trade in these beautiful pieces, the finest of which reside in museums around the world.
Tourism to Mata Ortiz has historically been an adventurous undertaking given the infrastructure in that part of Mexico. Recently, however, a paved road has been constructed into the Village and guest accommodations are available in nearby towns or at any of three inns in Mata Ortiz.
The sale will run for a limited time, scheduled to end in November.
