Tati Ortiz is the son of world famous Master Potter Macario Ortiz of Mata Ortiz, Mexico. He strives to keep the traditions of his father and other family members alive, while taking his own unique spin on the design of his pottery. As a young man, Tati won the Galardon (or Best in Show award) several years back at the annual juried pottery contest in Mata Ortiz. This greatly encouraged Tati to contunue perfecting his craft. His work has a beautiful elegance about it, and contains a high degree difficulty in his designs. This highly polished black piece is done with both black and colored paints, and features an intricate pattern of hard to achieve squares formed in the traditional cuadritos pattern. These small cuadricula squares are executed with near perfection, while painting with long strands of human hair. Gorgeous! We love the beauty of traditions being handed down within families, and the cooperative spirit that you find within family artist workshops throughout Mexico. It is what has always drawn us to these art forms. This pot is signed by the artist, and a pottery display ring will be provided at no extra charge.
