Multiple patterns are etched along the entirely black surface of this surprisingly light, thin-walled Mata Ortiz jar. The piece showcases a narrowed, rim, followed by thin-walled pottery that extends in a bulbous shape toward its narrowed bottom. The piece is expertly etched, featuring not only a textured backdrop, but multiple, intricate patterns carved along the surface, including bird designs including parrot, quail, and hummingbird, a dragonfly, feather patterns, step patterns, and a flower, all surrounded by beautiful geometric shapes. 8″ tall (on ring) x 6 1/4″ wide. 7 3/4″ tall off ring.
