Tonalá Burnished Pottery

Ceramics

by José Ángel Ortiz Arana

 13” x 13” x 1”

 

Ángel Ortiz, working in Tonalá, Jalisco, has been making pots for more than fifty years and is one of the most skilled potters working anywhere in Mexico. Tonalá has been an important center of ceramics for more than 500 years. Angel has revived traditions from the thirties that had actually disappeared from his village. He learned his craft from his grandparents, who were also traditional potters. Angel’s brushwork is simply gorgeous and as skilled as the finest brushwork anywhere in the world. His narrative designs depict nature and simple daily life.
