VO Wild Spinach scarf
A collection of pottery pieces from world-renowned artist Virgil Ortiz enthralled audiences at the Barnes' Water, Wind, Breath exhibition. Known for his sci-fi and apocalyptic take on traditional Cochiti pottery, his works of art tell a story of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt and Ortiz's contemporary reclamation of Native culture. Now, art lovers can take home a piece of Ortiz's masterpieces with a limited collection of textiles and barware.
Ortiz uses the wild spinach plant in this scarf to create a futuristic, minimalist design set on a turquoise background. Wild spinach is integral to Ortiz's creative process - locals harvest the plant in the Native American southwest and boil it down to create a black dye for clay pottery. The oblong-shaped scarf provides countless styling options, and the Virgil Ortiz logo accents the black trim.
