INDIVIDUAL MATA ORTIZ POTTERY



Reynalso Quezada Mata Ortiz Flying Saucer Pottery Bowl

Miguel Quezada, nephew of Juan (son of his sister, Genoveva), was born November 25, 1984 to Damian Escarcega, a railroad worker, and Genoveva Quezada, a sister of Juan Quezada, in Las Varas Babícora, a village of some 2,000 persons in the mountains of northwest Chihuahua, near Madera. The family moved in 1998 to Casas Grandes, near Mata Ortiz, for better schooling for Miguel.

Miguel learned his craft from his late uncle, Nicolás Quezada, brother of Juan Quezada in order to pay for his education, eventually earning a bachelor’s degree in tourism at the Nuevo Casas Grandes campus of the University of Juarez (Universidad Autónoma de la Ciudad de Juárez — UACJ). He had further classes in painting from his aunt, Lydia Quezada and cousin, Damian Quezada.

He has exhibited at the Museo de las Culturas del Norte (Museum of Northern Cultures) in Casas Grandes, and in the US at the University of Colorado Springs. Miguel enjoys experimenting with colors of local clays and preparing slip colorants from minerals he gathers from the region, and he is currently experimenting with cut-outs in his pottery.

Like all potters in the Mata Ortiz tradition, he uses no potter's wheel or glazes, nor does he use any commercial materials in his work. When not making pottery, he operates a crane in large construction projects - currently bridge building in the Sierras for the new system of roads to the coast and Copper Canyon.
