Glendora Fragua is known for her polished and intricately incised pottery.  This tall jar is polished tan, the natural color of the clay.  It is very intricately incised with designs.  There is a large Yei-style figure incised into the clay on one side.  The figure is slipped with various clays to create a gray and red color.  There are inset coral and turquoise stones. There are two flowers on the jar, each with a coral inset.  Near the base is a sun design with complex designs and a coral inset.  The remainder of the jar is fully incised with a complex series of designs.  There are sun, cloud, rain, and plant patterns.  All the additional clay slips are added before the piece is fired.  The lid has a cloud or terrace shape and it is fully polished.  The jar is signed on the bottom with a corn stalk, Glendora’s hallmark.  The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
