Martin Cota is one of the most innovative artists in Mata Ortiz. "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 special piece certainly attests to Martin's remarkable creativity and artistic talent.
As is his classic style, this wonderful olla combines a bold geometrical contemporary design and traditional indigenous forms. This time he is also introducing cut out elements, deep carved out line work and beautiful inlayed turquoise stones.
Undoubtedly a gorgeous creative piece!
