Javier Martinez: Day of the Dead. Day
Javier Martinez and his wife Gaby created this beautiful Day of the Dead themed olla. It is their version of how Mata Ortiz’ graveyard looks during the day. The etched skeletons and tombs are dedicated to some of the top Mata Ortiz potters that have passed away such as, Felix Ortiz, Nicolas Quezada, Nancy Heras…. As you can see, it is a festive portrayal of one of Mexico’s most important celebrations, The Day of the Dead.
A spectacular piece!
