Antonio, Frederica – Jar with Swirling Cloud Designs
Frederica Antonio is renowned 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 that are then filled in to create larger images in the squares. This jar has a high shoulder and a sloping neck. It is fully painted with a swirling cloud design. The imagery goes from the rim to the base. The black-and-white coloration gives the jar a very modernist appearance. This combination of thin walls, classic shape, and tightly painted design creates a piece that is visually stunning! The jar is signed on the bottom, “F. V. Antonio”.
