Laura Megariz is a native of New Mexico, and now resides with her husband in Ojo Caliente. She is inspired by the pottery of Southwest prehistoric Indian cultures, namely the Quesadas of Nuevos Casas Grandes. Megariz has worked with archaeologists and extensively studied in the archives of the Arizona State Museum. She creates each unique piece by gathering the same materials and using the same coil and scrape techniques employed by Ancestral Pueblo peoples. Each handmade pot is pit-fired in Ojo Caliente, and is intended for display purposes only.
