Chino, Marie Z. – Jar with Acoma Birds
This is a classic jar by Marie Z. Chino. It has the classic rain and lightning patterns painted around the neck. Below the shoulder are bird designs which extend down to the base. The flow of design is typical of Marie’s painting and part of what has made her one of the great names in Acoma pottery. The jar is a traditional Acoma olla form with the wide shoulder and slight neck. The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Marie Z. Chino”.
