Blue Corn is certainly one of the most creative potters of her time with a varied used of clays and firing techniques to create her distinctive pottery. This is a long neck water jar. The entire piece is fully polished and it is painted with a water serpent encircling the shoulder. Note the tiny clouds painted above the avanyu! The coloration of the red is striking and the design is perfectly painted in the buff-on-red style. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Blue Corn” and dated 1971. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. Definitely a classic work by Blue Corn!
