Mata Ortiz Handbuilt and Handpainted Wedding Vase


Mata Ortiz Handbuilt and Handpainted Wedding Vase by Cesar Bugarini

The Wedding Vase is an ancient vessel still used in traditional Pueblo wedding ceremonies. Each spout of the vessel represents one of those to be wed. The looped handle represents the unity achieved with marriage. The space created within the loop represents the circle of life. In the traditional ceremony, the couple drink nectar (prepared by the medicine man) from the spouts to represent the blending their lives. The pot is a reflection of the ancient rite. This wonderful vase has the beautiful black mirror-like background and is painted with ancient patterns. This vase has its own custom matching clay stand.
