Mata Ortiz Ceramics @ the Field Museum

A couple of years ago, the Art Institute of Chicago presented a fantastic exhibit of Casas Grandes pottery--beautiful stuff from more than 500 years ago, unearthed in Northern Mexico.

Until the end of next week, the Field Museum is hosting a small show of Mata Ortiz ceramics--a newer pottery tradition very much inspired by the Casas Grandes example.

Highly recommended, if you can find a moment to get out there.
