Laate, Jennie – Large Jar with Deer and Rosettes (1970’s)

Jennie Laate was among the most important revival potters at Zuni in the 1970’s.  This is one of the largest pieces of her pottery we have ever seen!  She usually made miniatures so something this large and complex is definitely unusual.  It is also striking in appearance.  The jar is large and round and just a slight neck.  The sides are painted with deer in their “houses” and separating them are large rosettes.  Around the neck are rainbird patterns, which are painted with fine lines.  All of these are design elements which are seen on classic Zuni vessels of the late 1800’s.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom.
