Graciela Martinez Quezada is an award winning potter from Mata Ortiz, she recently received the 23rd Mata Ortiz Concurso Excellence Award.


This piece was exhibited in 2022 at the El Paso Museum of Art for their exhibition, Contemporary Ceramics: Mata Ortiz.


Mata Ortiz Pottery is a recreation of the Mogollon pottery style found at the historical sites of Casas Grandes in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. This ancient cultural tradition has traveled to us through the past by way of archaeological reclamation. Artists today have sought to recapture the beauty of this pottery and have developed that into the Mata Ortiz pottery style. ​ This style looks to not just recreate the aesthetics of the past, but to re-establish a bond to a cultural tradition that was almost lost to time. The Paquime pottery style could have been a mystery lost to the vast depths of history and time, but thanks to the work of dedicated artists and artistic researchers, it has been revived in our modern time. ​
