Juanita Fragua is known for classic Jemez pottery and is the mother of potters BJ Fragua and Glendora Fragua, and sculptor Cliff Fragua. This is one of Juanita’s classic melon jars. The jar has nineteen swirling ribs pushed out from the inside. They are fully polished tan, the natural color of the clay. The inside of the neck has her signature lightning bolt. It is signed on the bottom, “Juanita Fragua”. The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
