This beautifully hand-crafted vessel displays the ceramic artistry of the Mata Ortiz from north-western Chihuahua, Mexico. Signed by artist Guadalupe Ledezma.
Each piece of pottery is hand-crafted from start to finish. The clay itself is collected from the earth local to this area, and is then hand-formed without a wheel, sanded, and finally, beautiful and intricate patterns are painted free-hand using a small brush composed of only three or four human hairs! Lastly, the pot is fired, which often intensifies the rich colors. Today's Mata Ortiz artists begin at a young age and share the traditions of their ancient methods with many generations of family members.
Purchase include black ring stand.
