Pasatiempo - - ON THE COVER -

An­drea Fisher Fine Pot­tery, 100 W. San Fran­cisco St., 505-986-1234 Mata Or­tiz pot­ter Hec­tor Javier Martinez presents his dis­tinc­tive black, white, and tan pots in­cised with im­agery de­pict­ing the Day of the Dead and Night of the Dead. Us­ing a sgraf­fito tech­nique in which he scratches through the ceramic slip to re­veal a con­trast­ing color be­neath, Martinez cre­ates elab­o­rate nar­ra­tive scenes of the iconic calav­eras featured in the an­nual Mex­i­can hol­i­day. Skele­tons traipse through grave­yards, dance, play mu­sic, and pa­rade through vil­lage streets. His Day of the Dead show opens at 10 a.m. on Fri­day, Nov. 2.
