Chino, Rose – Long Neck Jar with 16 Heartline Deer (1970’s)
Rose Chino was a daughter of noted potter Marie Z. Chino. This jar is an elegant shape with a round body and an elongated neck. The jar has 16 heartline deer spiraling up from the base to the rim. It is charming how they change in size as they are near the base or rim! Each deer is painted with bee-weed (black) and the heartline is a red clay slip. The jar was traditionally fired. It is signed on the bottom, “Rose Chino Garcia”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
