Vidal Corona

Vidal Corona is a potter working in Mata Ortiz. He appears to have a fascination with birds as he seems to prefer creating parrot effigy jars more than anything else. He also makes lidded jars and decorates them with lightly carved, sgraffito and painted birds, flowers and geometric designs.
