Enjoy a presentation on Mata Ortiz Pottery and Zapotec Weaving at Pueblo Grande Museum on February 3 at 1 p.m. by author Dr. John V. Bezy. Discover the prehistoric roots of the beautiful Mata Ortiz ceramics tradition and the archaeological area of Paquimé, located in Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, Mexico. Master artist Oralia López will also demonstrate intricate process of painting these pots. Oralia has set the standard in Mata Ortiz for finely executed geometric pottery designs. She is most famous for her unique patterns of graduated squares and triangles, drawn with such exactness that a secondary design of diamonds is produced.

Alex and Socorro Martinez are internationally renowned weavers known for finely woven Zapotec textiles from Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico. Each textile is made by hand and is a unique piece of art, featuring traditional Zapotec and Mixtec designs. The rugs, runners, and wall hangings are woven from sheep's wool and Mohair from Angora goats on upright shuttle looms. Alex and Socorro specialize in all natural vegetable and animal dyes for their textiles.

Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a variety of Mata Ortiz pottery and Zapotec weavings of all sizes and price ranges. This is a free event and open to the public made possible through the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary.
