Warren Coriz (d. August, 2011) bears the last name of one of Santo Domingo's most famous families - creators of fine pottery, amazing jewelry and all manner of Native American arts and crafts. Warren was in his 30s when he began creating pottery and he showed tremendous promise from the start. Warren learned his potting techniques from famed potter Robert Tenorio. His passing was a significant blow to the creators and collectors of pueblo pottery. Many purchased his work with an eye to investing because his evolution was so evident. We sold out of all his work within a few months of his death and were lucky enough to reacquire this pot from a collector who is downsizing. It is very rare to see any of Warren's work for sale from the collectors or museums that purchased his inspired work.

Warren was the son-in-law of the late Hilda and Arthur Coriz and he was fortunate enough to start making pottery with Ione Coriz (his wife); Hilda Coriz and Robert Tenorio as his teachers. Warren took two First Place Awards at the 2006 Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Show, a natural step up from his 2005 Second Place Award. His work has excellent shape, good detail and solid colors. Warren's originality combined with traditional symbols make his work stand out from that by more traditional Santo Domingo potters. The graphics on this rare piece are not only well executed but are done with a personalized creativity that makes it stand out even more as a top of the line of Santo Domingo Pueblo piece.This pot features birds and polychrome traditional graphics. It measures 4.5 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide. Your price $295 ~ Item #SD301. Includes Shipping!  SOLD

Some feedback......

"Your package arrived on Monday and I was reminded of your concern for both
the client and the product while unwrapping the piece of pottery I had
ordered. The 'box within a box' assures the intact delivery of the work of
art and renders it oblivious to the abuse going on around itself...on the
road to Texas! I thank you again for being you and having such an outstanding
offering of Native American art!"
