Here are some featured items in our Pottery section

CASAS GRANDES POTTERY
What is it, and why is it so popular today?


Casas Grandes pottery was first produced about 1000 years ago in an area of Northern Mexico called Paquime. Although at first the pots were  crude utilitarian vessels, their style, shape and quality transformed through  trade with the Hohakam and Anazasi. Designs were inspired by the environment including bird and leaf patterns stylized by each artist.

Paquime pottery has some likeness to that of the Northern Pueblos, but is distinct in the unique feature of having very thin walls. The Paquime culture peaked sometime in the 13th or 14th century and then vanished.

WHO REVIVED IT?
In the middle part of this century, archeologists did considerable research into the early cultures of the Southwest. A young man who grew up near  the Paquime ruins took great interest in the pottery chards of his ancestors. Now world renowned, Juan Quezada worked tirelessly for many  years to not just bring back "what was," but to take the art to new heights. He shared his techniques with family and friends until the revival of pottery making became an industry for his village. This "industry" required a market. Members of the Quezada family brought truck load after truck load  of their work to El Paso Saddleblanket Company.

While museums and snob galleries clamored for the pieces signed by Juan himself, El Paso Saddleblanket provided an outlet for the tens of thousands of pots produced by aspiring artists. Juan Quezada and his sisters still drop by El Paso Saddleblanket at least once a year to visit with Saddleblanket owners Dusty and Bonnie Henson. We are all a part of  the phenomenon that a book now call "The Miracle of Mata Ortiz." The book has drawn people from all over the world to El Paso and Paquime.

IS IT MARKETABLE?
Here we are in the 21 st century selling articles that are a revival of 14th century craft, and there is a tremendous market. Just like handweaving, handcrafted pottery is another art that people cherish and want to preserve.

El Paso Saddleblanket brings to the market affordable handmade pottery that sells well in all parts of the country. Our El Paso  warehouse-wholesale showroom continuously features thousands of pots
