$ 800.00

This is a tall cylindrical jar by Ramona Gonzales.  Ramona was known for her delicately painted pottery.  This jar is coil-built and fully polished.  It is a difficult shape to create and keep the sides even.  The jar has stylized birds with extended tail feathers around the top half. The lower area has rain and cloud patterns extending downward.  It is a strong graphic imagery on the jar.  It was fired a deep black with some areas of gunmetal coloration.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Ramona”.    It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is definitely a classic piece of her pottery!
