Quick Overview

Martin Cota is one of the most innovative potters coming out of Mata Ortiz, Mexico! As a true artist, he never repeats the same design again, and constantly pushes himself to be creative. His work is very fine. He hand builds the pots without the use of a potter's wheel, yet his pots are smooth, light weight and thin walled - all hallmarks of true quality in Mata Ortiz Pottery! He makes his own paints in the traditional style of Mata Ortiz out of clay, pigments and minerals and paints his designs using a paint brush that he crafts out of long strands of human hair. He is an amazing Master Potter who is versatile in every aspect of Mata Ortiz pottery.

This spectacular owl pot from Martin Cota is just mind blowing! It has that whimsical quality that we love in Mexican folk art, yet it is crafted to perfection with a fine art touch and an incredible degree of difficulty in the craftsmanship! The imagination in this piece is perfection - a modern take on the traditional animal effigies! And the attention to detail is evident in small features like the feet that he sculpted on the bottom of the base, and the opening of the sweeping tail. Grab this one while you can!
