 This is one of the largest potteries I have had available. This creation is by Artist Ms. Martha Villalpando. Her works are difficult to obtain and are rare. She specializes in native black clay from the foothills surrounding the artist colony of Mata Ortiz. With skill that only years of practice can develop, Ms. Villalpando takes a single surface, and without the use of glazes is able to create this splendid pattern of matte and shined surfaces. The technicality needed to do this is highly time consuming and tedious, and only a few members of Mata Ortiz possess the needed skill. Her designs are heavily influenced by her ancestors of the Paquime region from 1000 years ago. The sense of culture and heritage is rich in this display piece of fine pottery.
  Artist Martha Villalpando signs her work on the bottom.
 The pottery ring is included.
