Made by renowned artist Magdalena Pedro Martinez. Working with the distinctive black clay indigenous to San Bartolo Coyotepec, in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, Magdalena Pedro Martínez sculpts figures of women dressed in regional costumes. The black clay comes from the mines outside of her town, located in the central valley just south of Oaxaca City.The ceramic artists of San Bartolo Coyotepec are world famous for their barro negro or “black pottery.” What gives Martínez’s sculptures a creative edge is the carefully engraved detail the artist bestows on each piece. Such features as faces, hands and feet are particularly life-like in her work. Special attention is also paid to regional costumes.
The piece is 6 inchs by 4 inches tall.
