  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

  3. Mata Ortiz Pottery Cesar D. Nunez Gloria Reyes Black With Multicolor Round Pot Seedpot

    Mata Ortiz Pottery Cesar D. Nunez Gloria Reyes Black With Multicolor Round Pot Seedpot

    $100.00
    There is a great modern appeal in this fantastic pot by Cesar Dominguez Nunez and Gloria Reyes. A great representative of the black with multi color paint applied with hair brushes crafted from long strands of human hair. Such detail! Wow! The work of Cesar and Gloria is one of our favorites in this style due to the beautiful level of precision and detail in their work. Cesar and Gloria took 3rd place in the 2013 Mata Ortiz Concurso (government sponsored pottery competition) for a piece that they collaborated on together. In 2014, Cesar and Gloria each won prizes in the annual pottery competition, where Cesar took home second place and Gloria third place in their category. Truly beautiful work from multiple award winning artists! We can definitely recommend adding a piece from these two artists to your collection. Their trademark style is this very detailed multi color painted designs on a high polish black surface. The high shine comes from hand polishing with an agate stone, and the precise painting is done with long strands of human hair! Stunning! Learn More

  4. Mata Ortiz Pottery Cesar Navarette Ortiz Highly Polished Black With Multicolor Fish And Macaw Design

    Mata Ortiz Pottery Cesar Navarette Ortiz Highly Polished Black With Multicolor Fish And Macaw Design

    $180.00
    Absolutely Stunning!! The combination of the graphite high polish black with the multiple colors is one of our favorite styles. It is just so gorgeous and so eye catching. This piece is the work of Cesar Navarette Ortiz, the brother of Master Potter Eli Navarette, who originally developed this style. This piece is one of Cesar's trademark highly polished black pieces, with animals hidden throughout the painted design. Although painted with long strands of human hair, these animal designs are crisp and precise. Excellent quality! It is fun to look for the animals around the piece.. with this one featuring a fish design and a stylized macaw bird! The colors used in this piece are unique and offset the black base perfectly. The piece is signed by the artist. Learn More

    Claudia Ledezma just won first place in her category at the 2017 Concurso, the annual juried art competition in Mata Ortiz, Mexico!! Claudia Ledezma and her husband Luis Rodriguez are some of our favorite potters in Mata Ortiz! Highly skilled second generation potters, their work is consistently high quality, thin walled, light weight and with great attention to detail. They favor the Mimbres designs in their work, and combine the fine painting with the wonderful textural quality of carving on the surface of the pottery. I love how thin walled their work is.. crisp and clean and perfectly formed! Their work never lasts, and we have been consistently bringing home great treasures from them! I love the dragonfly design on both sides of this piece, and all the cool carved in geometric designs! Museum quality work from a young artist! Learn More
