Guadalupe Ortiz was the husband of noted potter Seferina Ortiz and the father of Virgil, Joyce, Janice, and Inez Ortiz. He learned to make pottery from Seferina and his work has a whimsical charm. This is one of the only ducks we have come across by Guadalupe. It is paitned with wild spinach (black) and traditionally fired. This piece has a simple folk-art look and certainly evokes a smile! It is signed, “G. Ortiz”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
