Lydia Ponce: Wedding Vase Mata Ortiz Art

Beautiful graphite black-on-black cuadritos, checkered Mata Ortiz wedding vase by Lydia Ponce. Wedding Vases are a very important element of Native American wedding rituals.  A spout of the wedding vase represents the bride and the other the groom.  The handle that joins the spouts symbolizes harmony and unity. Especially attractive is the contrast of black and graphite black little squares. Lidia is the sister of master potter Humberto Ponce.
