Mata Ortiz Pottery Weekend
November 28, 2015 @ 3:00 am - November 29, 2015 @ 9:00 amFree
Lydia Quezada will be our featured artist along with her daughter Pabla and son Moroni. Lydia is the youngest sister of Juan Quezada, the master potter who revived the Paquime tradition of pottery. Lydia’s work has been presented along side that of her famous brother almost since the beginning of the Mata Ortiz phenomena, and her work is elegant and graceful – beautifully executed. The gregarious Gloria Hernandez and Gollo Silveira family will also be featuring their delightful pottery that weekend. Demonstrations of forming and painting pottery will take place throughout the day with a firing of a pot at 2pm on Saturday and Sunday. Bring visiting family and friends who are here for the Thanksgiving weekend to see these artists at work. There will be a wide variety of pottery for sale.
