Archuleta, Anna – Mini Polychrome Jar with Cloud Designs
This is a charming miniature jar by Anna Aruchuleta. It is in the style of her mother, Belen Tapia, who was known for her polychrome pottery and especially the “blue” coloration. The jar is polished red and painted with clouds on both sides. They are painted with blue clay and highlighted with white clay slips. The piece was traditionally fired. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Anna”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
