Cool Serpent! 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, including winning third place in his category at the 2018 pottery competition. Martin 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 quickly becoming one of our favorite artists. I just love the incredible snake design of this beauty! This pot is a great size for easy display, and done to museum quality.. we just love the color combination as well. The piece is signed by the artist.
