Another gorgeous piece by Tavo Silveira! Tavo is one of the shining stars among the second generation potters of Mata Ortiz. Tavo is a multi award winning artist, who has also won the top Galardon (Best in Show) prize in the pottery competition sponsored by the municipal government in Mata Ortiz, and then again at the main government sponsored competition in October of 2018. Tavo consistently crafts some of the best work coming out of Mata Ortiz, and we are truly excited and proud to be able to offer some fine examples of his work!
This gorgeous piece is just the kind of work that we love! A unique shape that you will not find all over the place. We really appreciate that Tavo does not simply stick to the common shapes, but constantly crafts something unique. Crisp and Clean and Modern. The color combination is incredible as well! The precise and skillful painting is done in a gorgeous black color with red accents. The carving work on this piece adds a beautiful textural appeal. Tavo is the master of the carving technique, and combines elegant shapes, carved areas and beautiful paint in his designs. One of our favorite artists! This piece is signed by the artist, and a base has been made especially for the piece.
