 This eye bending southwestern Mexican Pottery is hand formed by Ms. Laura Saenz. Created by layering coil on top of coil of native clay, this native gourd shaped piece has slowly come to life. Ms. Saenz uses native mineral and plant derived glazes to hand paint this astonishing pattern. The 3 dimensional triangle pattern is so life like one would almost think they could reach out and feel the texture. There are thousands of individual shapes interconnected to created this larger than life vessel. Made from the regions white clay, shades of Navajo White, Dark Rust Red and Chihuahua Ebony are used to create this explosion of design. Ms. Saenz is one of the top artisans of this kaleidoscope pattern in the Mata Ortiz colony. The higher than average price for a piece this size is explained by the weeks worth of effort to bring this folk art to life.
Ms. Saenz proudly signs her work on the underside.
