Native Pueblo Handbuilt Pot by Jose Martinez
This wonderful pot was handbuilt by Mata Ortiz resident Jose Martinez. This classic mirror-like black pot is done by first rubbing a mixture of kerosene and graphite on the surface of the pot and polishing it to a high sheen with a stone. Then the pot is fired, then washed, then wiped down to get this beautiful finished product. The unique notched opening is a favorite for Jose. Pottery ring included. This pot measures 5.5 inches tall x 4.75 inches in diameter.
