Eli Navarrete: Olla with Base

Spectacular olla with base by Master Potter Eli Navarrete. This Amazing olla by Eli Navarrete Ortiz features beautiful Macaws and lizards
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 2014 we say he is one of the best!
This olla is a true wonder! The lizards are not painted they are formed by the marbling of the clay clay and are incredibly integrated. A wonderful piece!
