Blue Corn – Jar with 24 Red and Gray Feathers (1970’s)
5.5"w x 4.5"h
This is one of the most unusual colorations we have seen from Blue Corn. The jar is fully polished red and then painted with a matte red to create 24 feather designs. Interestingly, the jar is polished in a swirl, so that gives the feathers a sense of movement. The vent or tip near the neck of each feather is slipped with a gray clay. However, the coloration of the gray looks almost blue after the firing! It is very striking in person with the color and the polish. The jar is from the 1970’s. It was traditionally fired. It is signed in the clay on the bottom, “Blue Corn”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. Definitely unique!
