Antonio, Frederica – Infinity Rim Water Jar
Frederica Antonio is renown for her intricately painted pottery. Each piece is coil built and then finely painted. Her designs are a series of fine vertical and horizontal lines which are then filled in to create larger images in the squares. This jar is a striking shape with a slight shoulder and then her famous “infinity rim”. The rim is striking on the more classic shape. The jar is fully designed with an interlocking cloud motif. The design flows at various angles and seems to roll across the surface of the piece. 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.
