Gerardo Ortega Rooster with Feathers Large Pink

This ceramic rooster was made by Gerardo Ortega who lives in the village of Santa Cruz de las Huertas in the state of Jalisco, one of the largest pottery-producing states in Mexico.  Gerardo learned this art from the renowned Medrano.    

The rooster has a pink body, standing upright on an green base.  His body is covered with bright colorful feathers, and an orange tongue pokes through an open yellow beak.  The tail feathers are truly unique on this piece and feature a symmetrical design of red and yellow with light and dark blues.  This fun piece would be a welcome addition to any collector of Mexican folk art pottery or rooster figures. 

Painted roosters are a common theme in the work of the Ortega family.

This is a very fragile low fired sculpture. (Each time I bring this type of ceramic back I swear it will be my last~ but I look at the artists and say "we will make it work" some things are just too special!) So with that in mind we got it this far and now we will take it to the professionals~   We will take the sculpture to the Fed Ex office and have them pack and insure the item we will charge the actual packing and shipping cost which many times can equal the cost of the item~ So any questions please ask!!! If you are nutty as I am sometimes you just have to do it!!!

Thank you~ Casey
