Peynetsa, Jamie – White Clay Owl with Rainbird Designs

This is a small owl figure painted by Jamie Peynetsa and made by his mother, Avelia.  The owl is a classically shaped figure for Zuni pottery.  The piece is charming with a round body with extended beak, tail, and wings.  The piece is fully painted with the feathers.  There is a rainbird design on the back of the head.  In Zuni culture, the owl is the protector of the home and the keeper of the night. He is able to see what others cannot see and is thought to be very observant and perceptive. He is thought to have true wisdom and patience.  Jamie has signed the owl on the bottom.

Peynetsa, Jamie – Jar with Rain & Lightning Designs

Jamie Peynetsa is the son of noted potters Anderson and Avelia Peynetsa.  Avelia, his mother, coil builds the clay vessel.  Jamie paints the design.  He has a strong attention to the detail of the painting as well as his inspiration from classic Zuni pottery.  This jar is very tightly painted with rain designs above the shoulder.  The thin lines are even and add complexity to the piece.  The sides of the jar are boldly painted with lightning patterns.  Note how well Jamie paints to match design and form.  It is signed by Jamie and his mother on the bottom.  At only 20 years old, he certainly has a great future in pottery!

Peynetsa, Ian – Jar with Rain Birds (1994)

This jar by Ian Peynetsa is from 1994.  It is a more classic style of Zuni design with the Zuni rainbirds and the fine-line rain deigns.  It is an interesting combination of these classic designs with the vertically polished white slip to enhance the designs.  The jar won a 2nd place at the 1994 Zuni High School Art show. It is signed, “Ian Peynetsa”.  While he no longer makes pottery, it is a striking example of creative student art!  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
