Antonio, Frederica – Jar with Swirling Cloud Designs

6.5"w x 6"h

$ 1,175.00

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”.
