Fantastic marbled olla by Eli Navarrete Ortiz, featuring beautiful Macaws!
In 1997, in "The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz" the authors stated that Eli Navarrete: "...could become one of the two or three best potters to ever come out of Mata Ortiz" In 2013 we say he is one of the best!
This pot is amazingly lightweight with symmetrical thin walls.
This marbled olla is a true wonder! The lizards are not painted they are formed by the marbling of the clay clay and are incredibly integrated.
This olla is a testament to Eli's incredible talent and creativity!
