FAMILY of MARTIN MARIO ENRIQUEZ LOPEZ (Santa María Atzompa)

Martin, an elder statesman in his pueblo where he founded its ceramic market over 20 years ago, lives with his wife and two daughters who carry on the tradition of his family of origin: green-glazed pottery. Martin no longer works in clay. Tomasa Ruiz, Martin’s wife, and their daughters, Rosa Margarita and Eulalia Josefina, create outstanding examples of pieces with domestic uses (e.g., soup tureens, salsa bowls, plates, casseroles and vases), as well as primarily artistic pieces – all fired with green glaze and decorated with “bordado” (engraved clay) and “pastillaje” (superimposed clay) techniques.
