 Ms. Alina Arrieta is one of the younger potters of the village of Mata Ortiz. The sophistication in design and variety of images belies her youthfulness. You can sense to movement of the all the butterflies. Amongst them and on the edge and pollinating on the underside are a mist of beetles and bees. Each is individual and unique. The underside has a marvelous wild vineyard with flowers done in black glaze.
 This imagery is created through fine parallel etches into the soft cocoa brown clay used to hand coil this art form.
 A quality of Ms. Arrieta’s work is the subtle flow and blending of colors. The dancing butterflies have glazes of rich green melding into burnt red melding back to the green. This is a newer achievement of a newer generation. And by using the same methods and materials they used, this generation exhibits their reverence to their ancestors of a thousand years ago.
 Ms. Arrieta signs her pottery.
 A pottery ring is included.
