Borts-Medlock, Autumn – Red Carved Jar with Cloud Designs
This long neck jar by Autumn Borts is deeply carved. There are cloud and kiva designs across the surface. The jar is very deeply carved and highly polished. Interestingly, she has used the traditional cream-colored clay to fill in the recessed carved areas on the jar. The result is a striking jar with a visual contrast of the matte cream-colored clay and the highly polished red. The jar is fired a deep red and signed on the bottom in the clay, “Autumn Borts-Medlock”.
