Chino, Rose – Jar with 16 Heartline Deer (1971)
Rose Chino was a daughter of noted potter Marie Z. Chino. This jar is a classic Acoma shape with a high shoulder and short neck. It is painted with two rows of heartline deer. There are eight deer in each row. They are painted with bee-weed (black) and the heartline is a red clay slip. The jar was traditionally fired. It received a third prize at the 1971 Gallup Intertribal Ceremonials. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Rose Chino”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There are a few small areas of spalling, which is typical for pieces from this period.
