Chino, Grace – Large Jar with Geometric Designs (1989)

This is one of the largest jars we have had by Grace Chino.  She was a daughter of noted potter Marie Z. Chino and a sister of noted potters Carrie Chino Charlie and Rose Chino. Over the years she won numerous awards for her pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market and her work was featured in the “7 Families in Pueblo Pottery” and in museums around the country.  This large jar is just black-on-white and it has the shape much like some of the ancient Chaco or Mesa Verde pottery.  This jar has a mountain design around the neck and the body of the piece has swirling patterns with flower and feather designs. The graphic pattern of the designs is further enhanced by the fineline interior designs in many of the sections. As the jar is turned there is a constant flow of imagery.  The jar was traditionally fired and so there is just a tinge of blush near the base.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed and dated on the bottom.
