Magnificent marbled 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 has a unique marbled clay body. The marbling is very delicate and has no-unions. Eli created it with one continues coil so that the marbled clay wouldn't have any joints breaking the beautiful pattern.
