Ivonne Olivas is a very well known potter from the village of Mata Ortiz, Mexico. She began making pottery at the young age of 13, and has developed her skills to achieve great precision in her work. Her pots are thin walled, affordable, and expertly painted. She also studied under Juan Quezada, as her aunt is Juan's wife... nothing better than being taught by the great master of Mata Ortiz Pottery!! Ivonne Olivas took third place in her category at the 2017 Concurso, the juried art show sponsored by the Mexican government. We just love the flared top on this pot! The matte black clay takes on an almost chocolate brown color and then Ivonne accents it with white and turquoise paint. The combination is just strikingly beautiful! And the sculpted top adds another perfect touch! This piece was signed by the artist, and a pottery display ring will be included with your purchase at no additional cost.
