Mata Ortiz Wedding Vase Pottery by Carmen Veloz
"Carmela 'Carmen' Ledezma de Veloz is a potter from Mata Ortiz. She learned to pot from Gloria Losoya de Veloz, then she developed her own unique white-body seed pots that she paints in red and black, using the white body as her third color. She makes small beautifully-painted double-necked "wedding" jars as well as small ollas.
Carmen and her husband, Jesus Veloz, travel the United States doing demonstrations of the Mata Ortiz techniques for creating and decorating pottery." from: In the Eyes of the Pot A Journey into the World of Native American Pottery
