Ortiz, Seferina – Skunk Clay Figure
Seferina Ortiz is the matriarch of a family of renowned potters, including Virgil Ortiz, Janice Ortiz, and Lisa Holt. This is one of her animal figures. It is a clay skunk which is slipped with a white clay and the painted with 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 charming piece by this historically important potter!
