Commentary
This stoneware vase has a smooth unglazed buff surface, decorated with etched lines that are then pinched to reveal the surface underneath. While PĂ©rez works intuitively, his vessels often allude obliquely to the patterns and designs found in pre-Columbian weaving or to natural occurrences such as the motions of a wave or the stratification of the earth.
