Humberto Pina is one of the cool young guys of Mata Ortiz who is creating exceptionally well done pottery in an affordable range of prices. His talent is enormous. As a young artist and a great person, we love selling Humberto's work.. and it never stays in stock for long! We have been drawn to Humberto's work since we very first started coming to Mata Ortiz. His animal, bird and reptile designs are outstanding! In Spanish the name for the road runner is correcaminos, and you can actually see them in the area surrounding the village. This seed pot features the mighty roadrunners at play across the surface of the piece. The design is done in the sgraffito technique, where layers of paint are built up, in this case using a handmade paint brush crafted of long strands of human hair, and then etched to reveal the color of the clay below the painted areas. The pot is signed by the artist, and a pottery display ring will be provided with your purchase at no additional cost.
