Painstakingly painted design with perfect lines on a black on black elegant piece
About the artist:
The son of two very talented first generation of potters Lydia Quezada (sister of the Master Juan Quezada) and Rito Talavera he soon learned the ceramic artistry. He mainly makes black on black pieces like his mother. He burnishes the piece to get a shinny natural look and then he paints the black mate design with manganese to get the striking contrast.
