Borts-Medlock, Autumn – Lidded Canteen with Circle Designs (2001)
This is an intricately carved canteen by Autumn Borts-Medlock. She is known for her often fanciful carved pottery and use of unique shapes. The canteen is built with two handles. It is fully carved with a series of circles which flow around the piece. They are either polished or slipped with mica. There is also a micaceous lid which fits onto the top of the piece as well. The piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Autumn Borts”.
