Folwell, Kaa – Winter Water Jar with Raindrop Rim
Kaa Folwell is one of the exciting young potters working today. She is a daughter of Polly Rose Folwell and a granddaughter of Jody Folwell. This is a creative interpretation of a Santa Clara water jar. The jar has a round body and a fluted or “raindrop” rim. The rim is thin-walled. The jar’s surface has a mottled appearance and the shoulder is painted with a black-and-white geometric design. There is a Folwell family “x” as part of the design on each side. The black and white coloration is meant to evoke the winter, as well as the stripes of the Koshari clowns. It is signed on the bottom, “Kaa”. It is a beautiful balance of color, form, and design. We are excited to see more from this young potter!
