Blue Corn – Large Water Jar with Avanyu and Feathers (1970s)
Stunning! This is a large water jar by Blue Corn. The jar has an unusual form with a flat shoulder and a sloping neck. The piece is fully polished and around the shoulder has a water serpent (avanyu). Around the sloping sides are feathers. The neck has lighting and rain patterns. The jar is traditionally fired black and has a mirror-like surface. It is a striking combination of size, design, and form. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Blue Corn”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
