Like your site...some wonderful Mata Ortiz items. Been to the village many times and your items are of excellent quality (the great artists are included) and seem fairly priced.
Very impressive. Its good to know that someone around is showing the Mexican folk and crafts in places rather than our country.
Really good site to know more about Mexican ceramic arts. Patty
I am so thrilled by the pottery I just purchased. It makes me happy.
This a very good site to learn more about your country! Thanks for having this site.

I recently visited an exhibit of Mexican Folk Art at the Dallas Museum of Art and was very impressed with the art of Juan Quezada. The Arbol de la vida was a story of enchantment and history and I was impacted by the beautiful sculpture. I'm now very interested in this type of art and will someday visit Mata Ortiz in the hopes of seeing some of the artists at work. This web page is beautiful and I will continue to visit it often. Thank you for the newsletters.

What a wonderful site!! The pottery is exquisite! Such detail and and eye for beauty. Your site was sent on an e-mail, though I don't remember asking for it.
But I Will certainly watch for future e-mails from you. I am starting an Educational Products company for elementary schools in US and will be needing "culture

Hello May, I love the "eye candy". You have the nicest ollas and now some of your Mata Ortiz pots are in my collection. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
I've heard many things about Mata Ortiz. I purchased my husband some posters of paintings 15 years ago for our 1st wedding anniversary that happened to be of Mata Ortiz pottery, much
like the pieces I've viewed tonight. He will be visiting your town soon to learn more about the pottery and to begin teaching a class for

I think folk art is very pretty. There should have more Mexican folk art web sites. by Katrina Bailey
This is the only website I've been able to find that exhibits the really detailed Arbol de Vidas. I had a little trouble accessing the miniatures, but finally found them. I hope I can do it again. Now I just have to save my pennies so I can get a big one! I love them all!!!

I am surprised with this site. I was born in Mata Ortiz. I remember when I was just a kid and I used to play with Juan Quezada and a lot of people that appeared here. -Gilberto Estrada.
When I first clicked onto your site,I thought that Mata Ortiz was one artist.Surprised!I spent quite a while here,and very much enjoyed looking at all the beautiful pottery.Thankyou. Sj White
I first saw the artistry of Mata Ortiz in Puerto Penasco and have thought the pots frequently.I could not get the beauty out of my
mind. I have found some pots that I felt I could afford. I love to look at them. It's nice to know that other people appreciate the work also.
This is truly an inspiring form of art.
Loved the pottery I saw at the Mesa Swap Meet. Nice web page. Hope to be an owner of a special piece of pottery soon.

Hello I think it is wonderful that the art of these people is presented on the internet because many don't know about it. I am very proud that my uncles Macario, Nicolas and Eduardo Ortiz as well as my cousin Eli are considered some of the best potters.

These pieces of art are truly WONDERFUL beyond words. I just cannot see how it is done. I am a gourd artist and I know how difficult it is to pull off a total design and have it work. Not only do these pieces on your website work, they are exquisite.
Glad to find your site... love the mata ortiz I've purchased over the years... as our Governator would

Hey! I'm a Nuevo Casas Grandes Native, and I'm very proud of the art in Mata Ortiz. I met Mr. Juan Quezada when my friend Rogelio Orozco took me to his house.

Hi! Bev Coleman here, in Virginia. I think that your website is BEYOND awesome. What a great way to let my sister in Northern Virginia know about the PBS special on
Juan Quezada tonight! She just returned from New Mexico and has a great interest in this sort of thing. Your On-line Gallery is the BEST that I have ever seen, and I have seen
numerous ones. I am so happy to receive the e-mails from your company and look very much forward to them. I could only hope to have 1/2-as-nice a website as this one is.
Thanks so much for enriching my days with your on-line gallery. bjcoleman2001
