We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Elegant S hooks dangle triangular drops (or waves) of “water” in these handmade Virgil Ortiz Water Drop Triangle Earrings. Created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz, this contemporary Virgil Ortiz Water Drop Triangle Earrings are his interpretation of a traditional motif often ornamenting Cochiti pottery. Sterling silver. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
These striking Virgil Ortiz Water Drop Triangle Earrings reflect the intensely graphic designs of all of Ortiz’s creations—pottery, fashion, carpets, murals, and now jewelry. Informed by traditional Cochiti motifs—especially as expressed in the pottery of his grandmother and mother who taught him their craft—the designs of Ortiz’s handmade jewelry are adaptations of Cochiti artistic techniques and traditions, which it his mission to help preserve. The work of Ortiz was featured at the Smithsonian in the exhibition Virgil Ortiz: La Renaissance Indigène at our National Museum of the American Indian-New York, The George Gustav Heye Center.
