Florentino and Martina Montoya were two of the most renown San Ildefonso potters creating polychrome pottery around 1900. “The pottery of this husband and wife team is that of artist and innovators who introduced new materials and techniques to other potters. Martina’s experimentation with shapes and slips, and Florintino’s distinctive painting style facilitate the identification of many of their pots. [They] were active during a period of change in San Ildefonso pottery.”—Jonathan Batkin, 1987
