me if I wanted to see his wife's
pottery (usually when you go to Mata Ortiz you get approached by many
potters inviting you to visit their home to see and buy some pottery).
We went to his house and he showed me the coyote that you bought, a
crow, a tequila pitcher with five cups and some other pottery that
didn’t make it when it was cooked. He also had two unfinished
coyote’s that were not painted and cooked. Felix gave me a quick
and brief explanation of how he gives the black color to the pottery
using graphite and a polishing stone. Later Chela Ortiz arrived,
we chat a little, she explained to us that she is the one that paints
and signs the pottery.
