Señor Pat Ortiz - Artist
 Width - 7 inches
 Height - 9 inches
 Weight - 2 pound 4 ounces
A pottery ring is included.

 Paty Ortiz pottery is supremely popular. He is one of the few masters of mixed media clay. Señor Ortiz works in two different types of clay. Merging by hand this lighter and darker beige to brown material creates patterns and swirls, just as if we were hovering over a gas giant planet such as Jupiter. Why this is particularly impressive is these two clay types harden at different temperatures within the outdoor ovens. Successfully firing one type without damaging the other is nearly impossible. Yet this master artist has perfected the skill needed to perform this.
 Señor Ortiz also dresses the entire piece with designs and shapes which originated with his ancestors a thousand years ago. The Paquime culture and its designs are well established. The shoulder and neck of the pottery is encircled with repeating feather-like images and geometric shapes. The squares design and all others are hand painted using only homemade tools.
 This artist often times will separate the vase into sections by means of vertical strips or sashes. In this pottery there are three sections. One features his wonderful rendition of rabbits dancing in a large circle around a central circular design. The next section is a solitary rabbit with its arched back. And the third is an entire viper from tail to opened mouth and extended tongue, festooned with abundant Paquime designs.
 This is one of Patys larger pieces.
