Ortiz's home decor line

Pueblo artist to debut new home collectionVirgil Ortiz, a potter and fashion artist from Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico, will debut his first home decor line during the annual Santa Fe Indian Market next week.

Ortiz drew on his Pueblo heritage to create a line of furnishings that includes bedding, mirrors, furniture, carpets and lighting. The line is part of his upcoming "Vagabond" collection of pottery, clothing and accessories.

"Ortiz fuses the dynamic impression of the rogue traveler, the passionate vagrant, and the spiritual wanderer into his vision of The Vagabond through an organic mixture of art, high fashion and home decor," his web site states.

Ortiz will launch the "Vagabond" collection next Thursday, August 20, at Shiprock Trading in Santa Fe, where his works will be on display.
