Amazing what this man can do

I have bought as an anniversary gift two beautiful vases from this greatly gifted artist and they were a great success. My husband loves precolombine ceramics and he was delighted to see the quality and beauty of the pieces. For sure I will buy pieces again from this artisan, so happy I bought them!

I received ""Childbirth,"" and the artistry was truly stunning! The detail is exquisite on such a small sculpture. I always prefer sculptures which reveal a lot to touch, and this is one of those. It is rich with emotion.
