Inhaltsangabe: Over the past three decades a flowering of extraordinary ceramic art has been underway in a tiny village on the high plains of northern Mexico--hardly the place to expect an artistic movement in the late twentieth century. Yet art lovers have been coming from all over the world to see the people of this poor, backwater village of Mata Ortiz work their earthly magic at kitchen tables and backyards all over town. Several noted experts have collaborated in these pages to tell the remarkable story of Mata Ortiz. Personal histories of nearly 100 potters are included, 260 photographs in full color, a visitor's guide, index of potters, and a schedule of exhibitions in the U. S. and Mexico are included.
