Aprendiendo Hacer Ollas: Primer Dia
(Learning to Make Pots: Day 1)
Our hosts in Mata Ortiz, Chihuahua, Mexico are Hector and Graciela Gallegos, known for their stunning pottery. Since Graciela is more skilled at building the clay forms and Hector’s talent is the paintings that adorn the surfaces of the traditional pots, they work together as a team to create finished pieces. We dove right into learning the traditional Mata Ortiz methods of pottery on our first morning in Mexico.
