Mata Ortiz pottery is a recreation of the Mogollon pottery found in and around the archeological site of Casas Grandes (Paquimé) in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. The new pottery is named after the modern town of Mata Ortiz. There has been a resurgence in the making of pottery in the town beginning in the 1980s. Now about 300 of the 2,000 inhabitants in the town make a living from making ceramics, with about two-thirds of the population having employment indirectly related to the craft. Contemporary potters have refined the ancient styles, but they still use the local clay of with natural colors.  Artists are now producing museum quality work that can be found in national and international collections. This new artistic movement is due to the efforts of Juan Quezada Celado the self-taught originator of modern Mata Ortiz pottery, his extended family and neighbors.
