Mata Ortiz potter Jorge Quintana, owner of El Adobe Inn, builds a pot. He starts with a slab in a shallow bowl, adding coils and smoothing them until finished. He uses only simple tools: a piece of PVC pipe, a hacksaw blade, a compact disc, a syringe needle. His inspiration is some ancient pottery found when digging the well for the Inn.
