 Here is pottery created by Master Artisan Señor Fabian Ortiz. This piece is extraordinary as it is a wedding vessel by this award winning folk artist. Seldom are wedding vessels created by Señor Ortiz.
 Señor Ortiz is a top potter at portraying his own interpretation of the ancient Paquime cultural designs originating in the Mata Ortiz/Casa Grandes region. His scrolls, swirls, feathering and surreal patterns are highly valued for their intricate and intense flow, all hand painted in dynamic detail. 100% of the materials used to make these fine pieces are derived from the land surrounding Mata Ortiz. The soil types for the clay and the materials for dyes occur in unique blends only in this area of Chihuahua. This is created by hand, with great precision and detail of use of the natural, native glaze. In some cases the designs are near microscopic scale, are are indeed wondrous. Two suns, one rising and one setting, are on either side. The artists skills are ultimate and the time to create his works is immense.
 Wedding Vessels are ceremonial pieces used in nuptial ceremonies throughout Mexico and the Southwest. The two spouts represent the two people about to be joined in matrimony. The spouts are joined by an arching handle representing the union. Though the vessel never has liquid in it, it is kept as a precious keepsake for the rest of their lives.
 Señor Ortiz has some of the highest number of ribbons and awards for his this, both in Mexico City, the U.S., Asia, and all of Latin America. He is a member of the next generation of artists who have been handed the baton, carrying on and evolving the mastery of Mata Ortiz.
