Ron and Vicki Sullivan
Mark your calendars for March 4, 5 and 6, 2016.
Quail Creek will be the venue for a Mata Ortiz Pottery and Taxco Jewelry show at the newly renovated Kino Conference Center. Located in the heart of Quail Creek, the Kino Conference Center is adjacent to the Pro Shop, Grill Restaurant and Oasis Lounge.
Internationally acclaimed Mata Ortiz potters Jerardo “Jera” Tena Sandoval and his wife Norma Hernandez, who specialize in figures and effigies, will be on hand to demonstrate their pottery techniques, including forming, decorating and firing.
Taxco is the center of the silver jewelry industry in Mexico. Mata Ortiz is the center of the fine ceramic industry in Mexico. Blend the two and you have one-of-a-kind pieces.
Please join us along with the artisans for this very special Quail Creek international pottery and jewelry show. This event is brought to you by Victoria Martino, owner of Modern Mata Ortiz, and Quail Creek residents Vicki and Ron Sullivan.
