Laura Bugarini Cota
Laura's surname is Bugarini. Cota is her mother's maiden name.
By the time Laura was 18 in 1995, she was an excellent painter. She lives in Barrio Adobe with her mother, Guadalupe Cota de López, who along with Rosa López makes most of the pots Laura paints. She has developed a unique style of tiny fine-line designs repeated over the entire pot, a sort of Chinese blind stitch. Two of her pieces appeared in the Exhibits USA "Potters of Mata Ortiz" traveling exhibition, 1999-2001.
