Celebrating water motifs in traditional Cochiti pottery and Virgil Ortiz’s interpretation of the same in his other works, these handmade Virgil Ortiz Water Drop Triangle Stud Earrings were created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz. Modern, yet dainty, these Virgil Ortiz Water Drop Triangle Stud Earrings are sterling silver. Post backs. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
These chic Virgil Ortiz Water Drop Triangle Stud 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.
