Mata Ortiz Potter: Martha Dominguez

Martha Doninguez began making Mata Ortiz pottery around 1985. She became one of fifty-two original potterys of the Pearson Group formed by the Mexican government to help women become part of the economy.  Martha specializes in traditional polychrome while her daughter Brenda works variations of black on black.

Look closely and you will often find wildlife images hidden, or not so hidden, in the designs.
