Southwest Pottery Mata Ortiz Pot Decorated with Paquimé Patterns & Ceramic Base
About this Mata Ortiz Pottery Piece
This Mata Ortiz Piece is extraordinary in many ways. Tradition: The patterns are inspired by the Southwest Paquimé Culture. Shape: It was completely hand modeled, without the use of any pottery wheel nor molds. Elegance: The piece displays a perfect balance literally and aesthetically. It is mounted on a fully decorated conic ceramic base. The balance is also aesthetical because the mouth of the pot resembles and provides a sense of continuity to the base. The ovoidal shape is also very pleasing to the eye. Detail: The piece is exquisitely decorated with Paquimé inspired patterns, they are so tiny and detailed that only a true master could achieve such results. The overall painting design has movement and rhythm. A masterpiece of Mata ortiz Pottery
