Magnificent Kiva Steps 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 features Eli's trademark fish,birds and geckos painted over a beautiful graphite burnished pot. The top of the olla is cut out creating Kiva steps and macaw silhouettes!
