Blue Corn – Jar with 39 Feathers (1970’s)
Blue Corn is often best known for her polychrome pottery, she also made exquisite black-on-black pottery. She learned to make pottery from Maria Martinez at San Ildefonso. This jar is fully polished and patined with 39 feathers around the shoulder of the piece. The shape is a classic one for Blue Corn, with the low shoulder and elongated sides. The contrast of the matte feathers and the highly polished surface works perfectly! The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay “Blue Corn, San Ildefonso”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There are a few light surface scratches seen in the photos.
