"Martin Cota and Manuel Rodriguez are probably the two most creative and exuberant designers among the second generation potters" The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz, pg.91
This time Martin created an innovative and superb olla, featuring a beautiful bird standing on a branch at the top of the olla. This olla is a celebration of nature, through the combination of nature's clay representing earth, a beautiful branch that represents all vegetation and at the top a bird representing all animal life. The bold Native American style painted bands are the energy that flows an maintains life.
As is his classic style, this wonderful pot combines a bold geometrical contemporary design and Native American style!
