Borts-Medlock, Autumn – Red “Pueblo Parrot”, 10/50
Autumn Borts-Medlock is known for her creative carved pottery. As well, she has created some dynamic pieces in bronze over the past few years. This bronze is entitled, “Pueblo Parrot”. It is stylized in much like the thick-billed parrot, which was actually native to the New Mexico area in the past. It also has a connection to the Ancestral Puebloan bird figures created at places such as Chaco Canyon. The bird is carved with a feather pattern and on its back is a cloud and mountain design. Autumn says she was inspired to create her parrots after a two-day excursion to Chaco Canyon. This piece is number 10 of 50. The colorful patinas give the piece a striking appearance. It is signed and numbered on the bottom.
