Leticia Ledezma

Mata Ortiz

Like others in her illustrious family, Leticia Ledezma is a master potter living and working in the village of Mata Ortiz in northern Chihuahua State, Mexico. She learned to make pottery watching her parents, Rosa Loya and Santos Ledezma, as she grew up. Now, she seems to enjoy making lightly carved and sgraffito designs in the bare clay body of her pots.
