Dolores Porras Mexican Antique Rustic Vase Terracotta Clay Handmade in Oaxaca

About

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.
