Guadalupe Ledezma is the son of Olga Quezada Hernandez and Humberto Ledezma. He began making pottery when he was 17 years old, and is now in his late 20's or early 30's. I love the way that he has based his designs on the traditional style of his parents, yet adapted it with his own personal touch. The addition of the ground hog or prairie dog (the official animal of the Mexican State of Chihuahua) poking it's head out from the top of this pot is fantastic! It combines everything that we love in the whimsy of traditional folk art, with the modern aspects of fine art. Like all of our pottery, this pot has been signed by the artist.
