  1. Mata Ortiz Pottery Abraham Rodriguez Sgraffito Abstract Nature Scene White Clay Pot

    Mata Ortiz Pottery Abraham Rodriguez Sgraffito Abstract Nature Scene White Clay Pot

    $360.00
    Abraham Rodriguez just recently won 2nd place in the 2017 Concurso, the annual art competition in Mata Ortiz, Mexico for his sgraffito work! Abraham Rodriguez is a second generation potter who also learned the art of Mata Ortiz Pottery from his well known family members. Abraham is a true cowboy, and rides some of the nicest horses in town. His love of nature can readily be seen in his pottery. Abraham crafts some of the nicest sgraffito work with animal scenes in town. Sgraffito is the technique of building up layers of paint and then carving or etching to reveal the color of the clay below, and is quite the laborious process. At first sight you can see Abraham's love of nature, and he transfers the images into his work with care and respect. This piece is a fine example of his new work, a more modern abstract version of the nature scenes that he favors, with images of animals distributed throughout the piece. It holds an incredible visual interest. This piece was signed by the artist. Learn More

  2. Mata Ortiz Pottery Alma Flores Diamond Cuadricula Design Rounded Egg Shaped Pot

    Mata Ortiz Pottery Alma Flores Diamond Cuadricula Design Rounded Egg Shaped Pot

    $75.00
    Alma Flores is actually the cook at the village's Adobe Hotel. Besides her fine cooking skills, she has a real talent for pottery. We just love the way that she combines hundreds of cuadritos (small squares) to form a beautiful design on her pottery. She learned this art form from Jorge Quintana, but has developed her own unique style. Her painted line work in the cuadricula style is the best around. We have always loved her work! Learn More

    Mata Ortiz Pottery Celia Ortega Sgraffito White And Black Seedpot Iguana Lizards

    $45.00
    Celia Ortega is one of the very first artists that we drove to Mata Ortiz to meet. We saw her work at a gallery and fell in love! There is such a sweetness in her work! Celia is the daughter of the well known Yoli Ledezma, and favors the use of animal designs on her pottery. Celia uses the sgraffito technique, where layers of paint are built up and then the surface is etched to reveal the color of the clay below and form the fine details of the design. I love the classic combination of white clay with animal scenes painted in black. This pot is modern and fun! The pot is signed by the artist. Learn More
