Los Hermanos Ortiz Family and Teaching Tree

Disclaimer: This "family and teaching tree" is a best effort on our part to determine who the potters are in this grouping and arrange them in a generational order/order of influence. Complicating this for Mata Ortiz is that everyone essentially teaches everyone else (including the neighbors), so it's hard to get a real lineage of family/teaching. The general information available is scant. This diagram is subject to change as we get better info.

Note: Los Hermanos Ortiz was the name of a music group originally composed of six Ortiz brothers. Over time each of them drifted into the art of making pottery and then passed that knowledge on to others.
