Chino, Marie Z. – Long Neck Jar with Bird Wing Design (1970’s)

This is an exceptional long neck jar by Marie Z. Chino.  Marie is famous as one of the revivalists at Acoma Pueblo, along with Lucy M. Lewis, Jessie Garcia, and a few others.  This jar is thin-walled with a round shoulder and elongated neck.  The piece is fully painted with a bird wing design.  It is an interlocking pattern which starts small at the neck and enlarges as it nears the shoulder.  It is a visually striking example of the “op-art” influence in Acoma pottery.  The jar was traditionally fired so there are some very slight color variations to the white.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Marie Z. Chino”.  It is a classic jar where shape, history, and design are in perfect balance!
