Mata Ortiz pottery demo at AZGS Map Store

We're doing something new and different at the AZGS store in Tucson this week.   Well-known potter Oralia Lopez from the Mata Ortiz village in Mexico, will be demonstrating her techniques of painting and finishing her distinctive pottery on Thursday, Feb. 11.

We've gotten to know Oralia through John Bezy, who has authored many of our Down to Earth publications.  John's been helping Oralia market her family's pots across the region, including a modest distribution through our store.

We invite you to stop in and see how these amazing pieces of art are created.   My wife and I have two beautiful pots at home made by Oralia's family.
