A gorgeous "olla" handmade and signed by famous Mata Ortiz artist Roberto Banuelos. This piece of pottery was hand coiled and stone polished with hand painted desert lizards, pit fired with matte surface. The exact age of this piece is unknown. Roberto Banuelos' work is becoming very popular and highly collectible, he is considered one of the top ten potters in Mata Ortiz. Roberto's pottery is exceptionally light and is decorated with some of the most precise fine lines or figures such as fish, rabbits, and lizards. Roberto Banuelos is mentioned prominently in the authoritative book, The Many faces of Mata Ortiz, pages 85-87. In addition he is mentioned in almost every write up of Mata Ortiz pottery and his works are displayed in museums and collections everywhere.
