Precise and beautiful tridimensional design carved on the surface of the piece
About the artist:
He was born in Mata Ortiz in 1986 and lived all his life there until he moved to Casas Grandes to attend college where he graduated as an accountant. During his years at his parent's side, he learned to do pottery. He specializes in the sgraffito technic, so he paints the whole white clay surface with a color (red, black, green, or blue) and he carves an intricate geometrical design on the surface, circles, squares, or triangles all around the surface and then carves birds or fishes in the bottom of the pot.
