White Clay, although never truly white and more of a creme color, is our absolute favorite! Saul Silveira is a fine second generation potter, whose work has been greatly influenced by his famous sister, Lila Silveira. He is well known for crafting very fine light weight pottery, and is especially known for his expertise in polishing the pottery. He often gives classes to others on how to polish or burnish their pieces. We love the simple elegance and the respect for tradition that is shown in this stunning large piece! The painting on this one is simply magnificent, with a stylized representation of a traditional macaw symbol painted within the black and turquoise designs. The macaw was an important symbol in the ancient Paquime culture, as the feathers of the macaw were traded up from Central America, and used for important ceremonies at the time. We also love the sculpted top of this piece that adds the perfect amount of flair to a traditional piece. The pot is signed by the artist, and a pottery display ring is included at no additional charge.
