For many years many collectors of southwestern pueblo pottery looked down upon the Mata Ortiz work.

There is now a generally recognized understanding and appreciation of the Juan Quezada rebirth of Paquime work dating back to the fourteenth century.  MO works can now be found in museums, fine galleries, and the homes of people who previously spurned them. Availability of Mata Ortiz pottery has been impacted by the Mexican drug wars but is remains a fabulous value for handmade pottery (NOT spun on a wheel) of this quality.  

All of my Mata Ortiz was purchased in 2011 but remained in a closet until now when I am posting to my site (late 2015).
