  1. Mata Ortiz Pottery Abraham Rodriguez Medium Sgraffito Desert Nature Scene Deer Big Horn Sheep Birds
    $210.00
    Abraham Rodriguez is a second generation potter who also learned the art of Mata Ortiz Pottery from his well known family members. Abraham is a true cowboy, and rides some of the nicest horses in town. His love of nature can readily be seen in his pottery. Abraham crafts some of the nicest sgraffito work with animal scenes in town. Sgraffito is the technique of building up layers of paint and then carving or etching to reveal the color of the clay below, and is quite the laborious process. At first sight you can see Abraham's love of nature, and he transfers the images into his work with care and respect. Abraham took home 2nd place in his category at the 2017 Mata Ortiz Concurso juried art show. I love the shape and feel of this piece, as well as the high quality work that it represents. The nature scene in the desert features exquisite deer, a big horn ram, birds, and saguaro cactus in the design. And I love the nest of baby owls hiding in a cutout in one of the magnificent saguaro cactus! This piece was signed by the artist, and a pottery ring will be included at no additional charge.

    Alma Flores is actually the cook at the village's Adobe Hotel. Besides her fine cooking skills, she has a real talent for pottery. We just love the way that she combines hundreds of cuadritos (small squares) to form a beautiful design on her pottery. She learned this art form from Jorge Quintana, but has developed her own unique style. Her painted line work in the cuadricula style is the best around. We have always loved her work! Each tiny square is painted in the traditional manner using a hand crafted paint brush made of long strands of human hair. And the pot is formed by hand as well, without the use of a potter's wheel. This piece features an eye dazzling design of her small squares in a size that is not as commonly seen from Alma. A home run in every aspect! The piece is signed by the artist. A pottery display ring will be provided at no additional cost with your purchase. Learn More
