The inspiration of Juan Quezada evolves and the second generation of potters in Mata Ortiz are creating their own innovations in ceramics.  Laura Bugarini is one of the most outstanding of those potters with her own unique style of decorating which is extraordinary!  Laura works in collaboration with her mother, Guadalupe Cota de Lopez who forms the vessels Laura decorates. Now you have the opportunity to meet Laura in person and learn more about the Pottery Phenomenon of Mata Ortiz.  It will be an experience you will remember and enjoy.
