Red Olla with White Decoration


SKU: a104363 Categories: , Tags: ,


Taught by her mother, the late Belen Tapia, this potter is known for her beautifully stone-polished red pottery.

This exceptionally handsome piece is typical, in the well-formed shape, lustrous polish, and precise, vivid decoration.

Stylized plant designs are placed within stepped rain signs, suggesting the blessing of water leads to a good harvest, and enough to eat; happiness and good health result.

The deep red of the clay is typical of her work.

A marvelous pot: handsome form, expertly made, all by hand, in the old way. Great pot; great price, too.
