Availability: In stock

Although recently separated, Mirna Hernandez was the very talented wife of Tavo Silveira, who took the top prize (Galardon - Best in Show!) in the 2012 and 2018 pottery competition sponsored by the government in Mata Ortiz, and has won a prize in almost every competition around. Mirna works side by side with Tavo, helping him craft his famous work. Most pieces are signed by both artists as a result. But Mirna Hernandez is a talent that can very much stand on her own. She has won several awards for her work, and is a truly talented second generation artist. Her painting technique is incredible and she has a great eye for symmetry and all the fine details, while still being painted by home made paint brushes crafted of long strands of human hair.. I really enjoy the graphic nature of this piece. Truly eye catching! And the pot itself is so lightweight! This is the ultimate sign of quality in a Mata Ortiz pot. This is a small round version of Mirna's classic design, and it is signed by the artist.
