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. This is actually one of our favorite parts of going to Mata Ortiz, we never fail to meet another incredible artist! 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 as is traditional, and does expertly formed and thin walled pots. We think her work is an incredible bargain! The piece is signed by the artist.
