 Weight - 2 pounds 8 ounces
 Height - 11 inches
 Width  - 8 inches

This eye bending southwestern Mexican Pottery is hand formed by Ms. Alma Flores. This Art Work is accompanied with a three legged metal and cloth stand. Created by layering coil on top of coil of native clay, this substantial piece came to being. Ms. Flores uses native mineral and plant derived glazes to hand paint this marvelous pattern. In this piece, little squares build on each other to create larger and larger squares. This is a great case of from the simple comes great complexity. There are thousands of individual hand painted shapes interconnected to created this larger than life vessel. Made from the local white clay, shades of Navajo White, Rust Red and Ebony Black are used to create this celebration of design. Artist Flores is one of the top potters in the Mata Ortiz colony.
Ms. Flores proudly signs her work on the underside.
