Aguilar, Rosalie – Jar with Cloud and Rain Designs
Rosalie and Joe Aguilar created some exceptional plates during their brief career working together. This jar is one that was made, carved, and polished by Rosalie. The bowl has a large stylized cloud on each side. There are lightning patterns and the straight lines separating the clouds are rain patterns. The jar is fully polished and fired a deep black with some gunmetal areas near the bottom. It has the “cameo” style of carving which was typical at San Ildefonso in the 1930’s. It is an unusual design and surprisingly complex. The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed, “Rosalie” on the bottom in the clay.
