Bell, Seferina – Jar with Rain and Clouds (1960’s)
Seferina Bell has long been considered one of the great Zia potters of the 20th century. This is a small but classic jar of her pottery. There are rain and cloud designs which encircle the piece. The cloud patterns are slipped with a red clay in contrast to the cream and black colorations. There is a beautiful patina to the surface of this jar. It is signed on the bottom with a bell, which was her hallmark. Overall it is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is certainly a classic of her smaller work in design and form.
