Eli Navarrete: Unique Marbled Beauty

Magnificent marbled olla by Eli Navarrete Ortiz, one of the most successful Mata Ortiz potters. In 1997 "The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz" authors stated that Eli Navarrete: "...could become one of the two or three best potters to ever come out of Mata Ortiz" Today he is considered one of the best!
This very attractive piece has a unique marbled clay body. The marbling is very delicate and has no-unions. Eli created it with one continues coil so that the marbled clay wouldn't have any joints breaking the beautiful pattern.
