Folwell, Jody – Tan Water Jar with Painted Avanyu
This is a striking new jar by Jody Folwell. She is known for her creative pottery shapes and designs. This water jar has an elongated neck and a round shoulder. It is polished tan or the natural color of the clay. It is technically difficult to achieve a high polish on the tan coloration, as the artist is only applying water to the surface and then using a stone to polish. Jody painted the jar with a water serpent (avanyu) around the shoulder. It is a complicated and flowing design in black matte in contrast to the polished tan. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Jody”.
