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!
