Antonio, Melissa Concho – Mini Jar with Cloud Designs
Melissa Concho Antonio (b. 1965) is a daughter of Gilbert and Lillie Concho and married to Daniel Antonio. She is a sister-in-law of Frederica Antonio. This piece is coil-built and painted with bee-weed (black) and additional clay slips. It is a small water jar with a fluted rim. The inside of the neck is slipped with red clay. The body of the jar has checkerboard designs with clouds and wind patterns. It is intricate and eye-dazzling for its size. It is signed on the bottom, “M. C. Antonio”.
