Antonio, Frederica – Infinity Rim Bowl with Rain and Corn Designs
Frederica Antonio calls this shape of a bowl with the inturned rim, and “Infinity Rim”. The bowl is coil built and she turns the rim down into the bowl. The result is a striking appearance with the feel of the designs flowing into the piece. She uses a series of fine vertical and horizontal lines which are then filled in to create larger images in the squares. The designs on this bowl have two sections of “squares” which are the corn. Separating them are a band of rain and a band of lightning designs. Note how when she painted into the rim the designs are amazingly tight and fit the curvature! The black and white coloration give the bowl a very modernist appearance. 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.
