Mata Ortiz & Casas Grandes Pottery

Casas Grandes (Paquime) is a prehistoric archeological ruin near Chihuahua, Mexico. In the early 1970's, a Mexican railroad worker began reproducing pottery in the authentic traditions of Casas Grandes. Artist Reynaldo Pechegon Lujan joined in this movement located in Mata Ortiz, Mexico. The pots are formed by only the potter's hands; No pottery wheels are used. The clay is obtained locally from around the village using pick-axes and shovels. The paints are also natural to the area. Nothing is store bought. The pottery is dung-fired on the ground, not in a kiln.

This spectacular cara olla features a terra cotta clay base and is painted with classic Paquime style designs. The exceptional design of the face is an extremely difficult design to fire without damage. This older piece is signed by the artist Reynaldo Pechegon Lujan and dates between 1970's-1980's.

This piece will make an amazing addition to your collection. The approximate measurements are: 6" high and 5 1/2" wide. Please note: There are two small chips near the rim/top. Price is reflective.
