Juana Ledezma is a relatively new artist for us at DeSilva Imports. But Juana is not new at all in the world of Mata Ortiz pottery, being from the very well known Ledezma Family. Juana is the sister of the famous Ledezma brothers Gerardo land Efren Ledezma. This is actually one of our favorite parts of going to Mata Ortiz, how multiple members of the same family are producing gorgeous works of art and preserving the traditions that they grew up with. Juana Ledezma is well known for her geometric pattern in black and various colors. This piece features a beautiful red and black painted design on top of white clay that had been dug from the local countryside and refined by hand. Juana favors forming her pots with white clay without the use of a potter's wheel, and does expertly formed and thin walled pots that are quite elegant. We think her work is an incredible bargain! This piece is signed by the artist, and a pottery display ring will be provided at no additional cost with your purchase.
