Description

This piece is from a very special artist from Mexico, Concepción Aguilar, a member of the famous Aguilar pottery family from Ocotlan de Morelos, Oaxaca, Mexico. A little history of the Aguilar family is noted below. This family produces amazing muñecas (human figures of both female and male gender, in a vast array of village life activities, venues and traditional costumes). All members of the family are premier artists in this style, and produce amazing trees of life, mermaids, ladies of the night, lovers in parks, good and evil opposition scenes, devils, Frida's, catrinas and more. The detail on this piece from Concepción Aguilar is amazing. This piece is signed and very collectible!
Measurements are 13" tall and 6" wide. one very small crack on the bottom of the front. Has been used to burn candles. This was part of a well known collection of Mexican art.

The Aguilar Family: The story begins with Isaura Alcántara Díaz (who died in 1969 at an early age of 44), who was the innovator of the Aguilar family's pottery style. She worked in collaboration with her husband, Jesús Aguilar Revilla, in producing an important and delightful genre of ceramics in Ocotlán de Morelos, Oaxaca, Mexico. Departing from the utilitarian objects produced by their contemporaries, they introduced decorative human figures (muñecas). These figures imaginatively captured the daily activities, passionate expressiveness and cultural richness of pueblo life. Her highly-detailed, colorfully-painted, human figures embodied the vitality, depth of emotion and pulse of the village. Women in indigenous garb were portrayed in every aspect of life: transporting their wares and possessions, displaying and selling their produce in the market, nursing their babies, arranging their flowers, attending funerals and weddings, praying, sitting on park benches with their "enamorados" (romantic loved ones), and celebrating fiestas. Isaura and her husband had a profound influence on their now very famous adult pottery daughters, Guillermina, Josefina, Irene and Concepción (from eldest to youngest), who in turn inspired their own children and grandchildren, including Josefina's sons José Juan Garcia Aguilar and Lorenze Demetrio Garcia Aguilar, and Jose Francisco García Vásquez (son of Demetrio). An amazing family for sure.

This is great! A friend of mine suggested a clay foot cleaner and this is the one I chose. It's easy to hold, large, and works well. Shipping was very quick too.
