Red Olla with White Decoration
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.
