Manolo Rodriguez: Geckos and Birds Olla
Manuel, Manolo, Rodriguez Guillen created this very attractive geckos and birds olla over a tan colored background. The design of the pot starts at the bottom of the pot and flows to the top. It is divided into several different symmetric areas where different birds and Escher style geckos are painted. Manolo began pottery making when he was a young teenager. Since then he has been very generous with his knowledge and taught many other potters.“Martin Cota and Manuel Rodriguez are probably the two most creative and exuberant designers among the second generation potters” The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz, pg.91 A beautiful olla combining traditional and contemporary designs.
