The Pot That Juan Built Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using local materials and the primitive methods of the Casas Grandes people, Juan

Quezada creates stunning pots in the traditional style. Each is a work of art unlike any other.

This is the pot that Juan built.

These are the flames so sizzling hot

That flickered and flared and fired the pot,

The beautiful pot that Juan built.

Written in the form of The House That Jack Built and accompanied by explanatory material, this celebratory story is also the tale of the village of Mata Ortiz and its people. Juan's pioneering work has transformed Mata Ortiz from an impoverished village into a prosperous community of world-renowned artists.

With vibrant illustrations by Caldecott Medal winner David Diaz, The Pot That Juan Built is sure to enlighten all who are fascinated by traditional art forms, Mexican culture, and the power of the human spirit to find inspiration from the past.
