Antonio, Frederica – Jar with Water, Clouds, Rain, and Lightning Design Jar

6"w x 5"h

$ 1,700.00

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 which are then filled in to create larger images in the squares.  This water jar has a high shoulder and a short neck. The jar has water, rain, clouds, and lightning as the designs.  Each of the four sections is highly detailed and varied in design.  Check out the tight lines for each square!  Separating the sections are red and brown rainbow bands that extend downward from the rim.  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 creates a piece that is visually stunning!  The jar is signed on the bottom, “F. A. Antonio”.
