Blue Corn – Red Jar with 32 Feathers and Cloud Designs (1960s)
4"w x 2.5"h
Blue Corn is certainly one of the most creative potters of her time with a varied use of clays and firing techniques to create her distinctive pottery. This is a very intricately painted jar. It is fully polished red and the design is matte on the polished red surface. There are 16 very tightly painted feathers on each side. Separating them are elongated cloud patterns that are both fully matte and outlined. It is a design that accentuates the shape of the jar. It was traditionally fired to create the coloration. The jar is signed in the clay on the bottom, “Blue Corn”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
