Reynaldo Quezada

Reynaldo Quezada Celado is Juan Quezada’s youngest brother. He has been a fine potter for over 20 years. He learned his art from his brothers Juan and Nicolás. He refined his artistic talents under his sister Consolación. Reynaldo is credited with the mixing of clays (mezclado) for the marbleized finish. He also pioneered the use of textured (tejido) indentations to give the pot a “braided” look. Reynaldo is well known for his black, unpainted, but textured bowls in the shape of a flying saucer. His work is regarded as innovative and elegant. He lives in Barrio Central, Mata Ortiz
