Diego Valles is recognized as the most creative potter working in Mata Ortiz today. The repeated stair stepped design on this small jar circles the pot with perfect execution. What is most miraculous are the designs that are etched into the surface. Look closely; it will reveal an engineer’s perfection.
Purchased from Diego in Tucson on February 8, 2011 at one of his shows at Western National Parks.
4-1/8" tall, 6" diameter. Letter of authenticity available.
