Publisher Comments:

"Thin as Bone China, painted with exquisite precision, the best Mata Ortiz pots . . . seem to float above a shelf like ceramic balloons, " writes Susan Lowell in The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz, which captures the beauty and magic of this emerging, indigenous art form.<P>The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz introduces ceramic collectors to the remarkable village artists of Mata Ortiz in northern Chihuahua, Mexico.
