Martin Olivas Quintana is a rising star amongst 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 resemblence 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 quickly becoming one of our favorite artists. This hummingbird pot is a great size for easy display, and done to museum quality. I love the effect that Martin used with the multicolor combination in each part of the design. Quite unique! We just love his work!
