This is a masterpiece of art by an expert and mature potter/artist, Betty Guillen from the village of Mata Ortiz in northern Mexico. This beautifully-shaped pot has been formed by the coil method with the local white clay. The shape of this "olla" recommends it, and the exquisite checkerboard design in black and terra cotta under an artistic collar is perfection on the burnished stone-polished finish.
