Estevan, Paula – Op-Art Rain and Lightning Design Jar

Paula Estevan has built a reputation for her highly detailed painted pottery.  This jar is more “trompe l’oile” than “op-art”.  The jar is thin-walled with a wide shoulder and short neck.  The jar has a lightning pattern which extends from the neck to the base.  It is surrounded by linear rain patterns.  The design, however, does fool the eye as the lighting pattern which extends from the neck to the base give the piece added dimension.  It is spectacular painting on this jar and a reflection of how Paula continues to be one of the leaders of Acoma pottery. It is signed on the bottom, “P. Estevan”.
