Appleleaf, Martha Fender – Green-on-Black Water Jar

Martha Appleleaf learned to make pottery from her mother, Carmelita Vigil Dunlap. Today she continues to create distinctive pottery with traditional designs.  This is a classic shaped water jar with a sharp shoulder and a micaceous clay rim. The jar has been painted with a green clay slip, which has a very subtle green coloration after the firing. The design is a feather pattern around the shoulder and a prayer feather design around the neck.  Below the shoulder are tadpoles. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.
