$540.00

Native Pueblo Handbuilt and Handpainted Pot. This wonderful pot was handbuilt and handpainted by Mata Ortiz resident Pabla Quezada. A spectacular piece with pristine painting on a beautiful black background. The glossy black is achieved by rubbing a mixture of kerosene and graphite into the clay and polishing it with a stone until it shines. The photo does not do this pot justice, it is spectacular to look at and when it is held, feels perfect to the touch. Pabla shaped this pot so the swirl at the opening represents the head of an eagle with his wings wrapped around the pot. This pot is so perfectly made that it stands without a ring, we include the stand to protect the bottom of the pot. Dimensions: 8 in. tall x 5 in. dia
