Seferina Ortiz is the matriarch of a family of renowned potters, including Virgil Ortiz, Janice Ortiz, and Lisa Holt. This is one of her drummer figures.  The drummer is sitting down and the drum is part of the piece.  The drumstick is made from wood and leather and added after firing.  It is more charming as her husband, Guadalupe, also made Cochiti drums.  The piece is slipped with a white clay and then painted with a red clay slip and wild spinach (black).  The piece is signed on the bottom.  It was traditionally fired and in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  Definitely a classic figure by this historically important potter!
