Chino, Brian – Mini Fine-line Long Neck Jar (1990’s)
Brian Chino was a son of noted potter Edna Chino and a brother of Jay Vallo and Corrine Chino. He began making pottery in 1988. This is one of his classic miniatures. The jar is fully painted with very thin lines to create an interlocking star pattern. Along the base is a feather pattern and around the shoulder is a plant design in red, white and black. The elongated neck is a signature of his pottery. It is painted with a combination of mountain and snow patterns. His work was always exceptional for the size. This piece is signed, “B. Chino” on the bottom. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
