A gorgeous variation on a classic from Martin Olivas Quintana that just never goes out of style! This hummingbird design pot will always be our favorite by Martin as it is the first piece that we fell in love with from him. And the addition of the quail just makes it even more interesting. I love the modern carved area on the pot, as well as the stylized macaw. Martin Olivas Quintana is a rising star among the second generation potters of Mata Ortiz. He has won several awards for his work at the annual pottery competitions, and is the nephew of master potter Jorge Quintana. You can see the family resemblance in much of the Quintana Family's work, with consistently high quality sgraffito work. Sgraffito is the carving or scratching of designs into the pottery. Martin Olivas Quintana truly excels at this pottery technique, and we love his color combinations. Martin is one of our favorite artists. This hummingbird and quail pot is a great size for easy display, and done to museum quality. We just love his work!
