Fragua, Glendora – Jar with Geometric Designs and Coral Insets
Glendora Fragua is known for her polished and intricately incised pottery. This tall jar is polished tan and the entire surface is fully etched. The rim of the jar is carved in a kiva step shape. The cloud, rain, and wind designs extend from the rim to the base. There are four coral insets on the top of the kiva steps. Near the base are polychrome painted star patterns, each with an inset piece of coral. The jar is signed on the bottom with a corn stalk, Glendora’s hallmark.
