Folwell, Susan – Jar with Butterfly Designs (1996)
4.75"w x 3"h
Susan Folwell continues to combine classic imagery with her own contemporary style of shape and design. This jar is fully polished and fired brown in coloration. The jar has an asymmetric rim. Around the shoulder are three etched butterflies. They are separated by cloud and wind designs. The lighter red areas are where she has just etched away from the polished surface, but not deep enough to expose the clay. The base of the jar is fully etched with a cloud pattern. The coloration from the firing is striking. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Susan Folwell”. It is from 1996. The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
