A sgraffito Day of the Dead design on a black and white jar

Alfredo Rodriguez is a potter from Mata Ortiz. He most likely learned to make pottery from his cousin, Luis Armando Rodriguez but his early work also showed a significant influence from another cousin: Manuel (Manolo) Rodriguez.

More recently, Freddy has been producing a lot of black and white sgraffito Day of the Dead and Night of the Dead designs on his pots, in addition to his contemporary black-on-beige painted designs. He is married to potter Diana Loya and they often collaborate on their projects. They live in the Barrio Americano neighborhood in Mata Ortiz.
