This is a tall & stately, striking black Mata Ortiz pot created by premier artisan Señor Benjamin Sota. Señor Sota is known for his uncanny ability to create larger pottery with contrasting glossy and matte finishes. These finishes combine to create wondrous mind-bending patterns of the finest detail. His work is very uncommon today. The individual design elements combine to be greater than the whole. Harking back to the time of his ancestors, Señor Sota uses simple shapes of squares as building blocks to produce this fantastical pattern embracing the pot. A very tapered base moves to the wide top in a soft and fluid motion.
As touched upon a moment ago, the textures and designs are all an homage to the Artists ancestors, the Paquime Culture of the Casas Grandes Region from 1000 years in the past. This Mata Ortiz is modern Chihuahua culture married with the ancient spirit of the region.

For anyone who has yearned for at least one piece of artwork for their home, but shy away from the prohibitive costs, this is the perfect opportunity to get an authentic and true piece of Latin American Folk Art at an amazing price.
Señor Sota's signature is on the underside, AND the three legged metal stand is included.
