Always great to support a young artist who is seeking to carry on a tradition that they learned from their parents! Abel Lopez is the young son of the highly sought after Master Potter Leonel Lopez. At only 21 years of age, Abel has mastered the unique sgraffito style of his famous father. He builds up layers of paint using the traditional paintbrush crafted of long strands of human hair, but then adds an extra step to etch and reveal the color of the clay below to form his gorgeous designs. Abel works in both animal designs, and modern geometrical work, always seeking to be unique in his creations. This pot features Gila Monsters or Iguanas that appear to crawl playfully over the surface of this piece. It is signed by the artist.
