Mexican Antique Dolores Porras Clay Pottery Folk Art Terracotta Vessel Vase

US$2,800

About

This one of a kind Mexican antique is one of few pieces Dolores had at her home at the time she passed away. Dolores portrays the flora from her garden in Santa María Atzompa, Oaxaca. This beautiful piece is a true representation of her work with color glaze and abstract animal figures, very typical of her work. About the artist: Dolores Porras Enríquez is widely known throughout Mexico and the world for being the creator of a technique rooted in the land of Oaxaca: pottery in natural color, glazed and decorated with floral motifs and colorful animals. In the early 1980s, Dolores proposed the idea of giving color to the traditionally made pottery of Atzompa. Although she was already known for her flower pots in natural color clay, this vivid approach of decorating with lucid turtle figures, iguanas, snakes, fishes, flowers, mermaids and human faces was the catapult to her fame. Her work is distinguished not only by the translucent glaze but by the inimitable Picasso-like figures that she painted or built on the surface of the pieces. Her pieces have been in high demand by collectors and institutions since the 1980s. She will always be remembered as one of the most complete contemporary artisans of all times.
