Glendora Fragua is known for her polished and intricately incised pottery.  This jar has a round body and a short neck.  It is fully polished tan, the natural color of the clay.   The jar has ten rows of geometric designs that extend from the rim to the base.  They are square and swirling clouds.  The square design is then repeated on the lid with carved square holes. The lid fits onto the top of the jar.  It is signed on the bottom with a corn stalk, Glendora’s hallmark.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  The piece has a second place ribbon from the 1997 Santa Fe Indian Market.
