Juan Quezada

Juan Quezada handles some of the area's coveted white clay. Pottery purchased at a New Mexico secondhand shop in the mid-1970s led to Mata Ortiz's rebirth as a nucleus of art. The pottery was made by Quezada. The purchaser, Princeton-trained anthropologist Spencer MacCallum, sought him out. Quezada is now 72.
