Regular price $3,595.00 Sale price $2,895.00

 The Mask and Toro vessel is an example of the caliber of work the places Luis Enrique Gutierrez as one of the top Cultural / Contemporary ceramists in the world.

This sculpture both defines the cultural heritage that has lead Luis into the decorative clay world and the modern artistic mind the has led him to be the innovator of design and craftsmanship he has become.

The sculpture is headlined by Luis's classic Toro y Pez motif where a fish and tucan come together within the face of long, horned bull.

Masks throughout the piece are a reference to ancestors and the roots from which we all are born from.

There is however so much more.  The size of the thrown vessel allows for the development of so many story lines including: tree of life, turtle, many birds and native symbols such as the Feathered Serpent.

A work of immense character and presence.  One of the defining pieces of Luis's career.
