Jaime Quezada Black/Black Crown Mata Ortiz Pottery Masterpiece
Jaime Quezada is a nephew of Juan Quezada (the son of his brother Jesus) and makes some of the most spectacular, detailed, most artistic black on black pottery in Mata Ortiz. His pottery is shown in exhibits and book illustrations as well as posters. He has won prices at the prestigious and highly competitive pottery exhibition in Mata Ortiz. Note the fine precision and the details of the present pot. The pattern is etched out but its precision rivals that of painting.
The vase with the four-pointed fluted mouth, called a Crown, is a trademark for Jaime. It is the design that best identifies him (along with his owls) and is shown in books such as Artes de Mexico.
The pot is among the largest crown Jaime makes, measuring 10 1/2 inches high by 8 inches wide and is in perfect condition without any defects or flaws. And is signed by Jaime.
