Bell, Seferina – Jar with Birds and Clouds (1960’s)
Seferina Bell has long been considered one of the great Zia potters of the 20th century. This is a classic jar with three large birds. The birds are painted large and note the lines on the wings. Separating the birds are large cloud patterns which are polished red. They extend from the neck to the base. The bowl was slipped with the white clay and painted with the black and red clay. There is a beautiful patina to the surface of this large jar. It is signed on the side with a bell, which was her hallmark. Overall it is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair but there is a slight lean to the form. It is certainly a classic of her work in design and form.
