Impressive lidded olla with mosaic by Hector Gallegos Jr. This amazing pot has etched sgraffito deer, birds, fish, coyotes, corn, cactus...Magnificent!
Hector has developed his own graphite technique by first painting his animals and plants with red natural pigment, and then finely scratching the figures for detail. This way he preserves the smoothness of the pot.
Hector Gallegos Jr is one of the top Mata Ortiz artists today. Gorgeous!
