  1. Mata Ortiz Pottery Maria Acosta Matte Black Clay With Pink And White Paint Squared Lip
    $89.00
    Maria Acosta is another well known potter in the village. She is popular for the quality and affordability of her pots. Maria Acosta hand forms her pots without the use of a potter's wheel, from clay that has been dug from the surrounding countryside and strained to remove the impurities. As such, the clay is the purest and easiest to work with, so say the artists from Mata Ortiz. The painting on this piece was done with paint made from natural pigments and minerals by the artists, and applied with handcrafted brushes made of long strands of human hair! The pot is also polished with an agate stone to achieve a beautiful shine. This particular piece is crafted of a matte black clay that has a rich chocolate brown tone, and then perfectly accented with pink and white paint that is handcrafted from natural pigments and minerals. This pot features a stylized version of the four sacred points (north, south, east and west) that is found at the entrance to the nearby ruins of Paquime. The squared lip on this piece is a nice accent, without overpowering the design of the piece. The pot is signed by the artist, and a pottery ring is always provided for free with your purchase.

  3. Oaxacan Wood Carving Candido Jimenez Green Dog Flowering Vines
    $60.00
    We just love the colors of this dog! This wood carving was hand painted by Candido Jimenez. Candido is one of the brothers of Maria Jimenez. Together with their brothers, Aaron, Miguel and Alberto, they produce some of the highest quality carvings in the village of San Martin Tilcajete. Maria started off practicing embroidery, while her brothers followed the traditional path of wood carving. When her oldest brother Aaron, who carved and painted his own figures, had trouble selling his pieces commercially, Maria stepped in and began painting the figures for her brother. She borrowed her designs from the intricate embroidery patterns that she used, and her brother's business quickly became successful. The family pieces have an elegance that stands out in the village. This dog is no exception. We just love the colorful floral pattern, the floppy ears, the adorable face and the perky tail! It has all the qualities of whimsy and color that we love in Mexican Folk Art. The tail is removable for safe shipping, and the piece has been signed by the artist. Learn More
