About Us

Mata Ortiz to You is a jewelry distributor, bringing to you fine art from two small villages in Mexico – Mata Ortiz, the center of fine ceramics, and Taxco, the center of fine silver.  When you purchase from us, you are guaranteed to receive a high quality, original piece of art.  Mata Ortiz to You is the distributor to many shops and museums throughout the United States.


I would like to introduce myself. I am Victoria Martino, the proud new owner of Mata Ortiz to You. As the daughter of a potter, I love experimenting with clay. 8 years ago, my father invited me to the pottery village in Northern Chihuahua. This trip changed the course of my life. Modern Mata Ortiz began, many buying trips to Mata Ortiz, wonderful friendships with the artists and their families developed.

A few years later, I had the privilege of meeting Jan and Russ Diers. We formed a friendship as well as a business relationship. After 5 years of doing artisan sales and demonstration events at museums and galleries around the country together, they announced their desire to fully retire to focus on family and travel. I am very grateful they asked me to fill their shoes. It is an honor to work with Agustin and the potters of Mata Ortiz. And continue to bring to you, this one of a kind exclusive line of Taxco Silver Shard Jewelry.
