Antonio, Frederica – Four Color Jar with Rainbow Bands
Frederica Antonio is renown for her intricately painted pottery. This jar has a striking shape with the high shoulder and small neck. Each piece is coil built and then finely painted. The background design is a cloud pattern, which is painted with a series of fine vertical and horizontal lines which are then filled in to create larger images in the squares. This jar has “rainbow bands” which extend down from the neck and are painted with red and tan colored clays. Half way down the jar the color is a brown clay which is the earth. Check out the very tightly painted squares on this jar! The base of the jar is concave, reminiscent of historic Acoma jars which were carried on the head. This combination of thin walls, classic shape, and tightly painted design create a piece which is visually stunning! The jar is signed on the bottom.
