Fine Pueblo Pottery
INDIVIDUAL MATA ORTIZ POTTERY
Lydia Quezada Museum Quality White Clay Mata Ortiz Olla
Mata Ortiz pottery hardly comes in more elegant fashion than this piece. This very large, very impressive olla was hand made by non-other than Lydia Quezada and measures a full 14.5 inches high by 9 inches in diameter.
Lydia is well known from her black on black pottery that is made with highly polished designs on a matte black background. Quite a bit more rare and much more coveted is her white-clay pottery. The decoration is a signature design for this distinguished potter. It is the mirror image of the black on black designs, but here executed on a white background.
Lydia and her equally talented husband, Rito Talavera, are featured prominently in the authoritative book The Many faces of Mata Ortiz. It devotes four full pages to these master potters, beginning on page 155.
