Ortiz, Virgil – Hummingbird Tile
6"w x 4.5"h
This is a new tile by Virgil Ortiz. The design is a hummingbird in flight along with a spiral wildflower pattern. There is also Virgil’s signature “Turkey track” which looks like an “x”. The tile uses native clay, native clay slips and wild spinach (the black). The piece is signed on the back. The use of traditional and contemporary imagery has become a standard for Virgil’s pottery as he pushes the boundaries of contemporary Native clay. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
