Holt, Lisa & Harlan Reano – Jar with Plant and Leaf Designs
Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano make an amazing team, working to create innovative pottery using traditional techniques. Lisa makes the pottery and it is painted by Harlan. This jar is a shape that is perfect for Harlan’s intricately painted designs. The jar has the wild spinach design around the neck. They are painted with very thin lines! The same design is repeated near the base. The body of the jar has flowing leaf patterns. The entire surface has a very modernist appearance with the black-and-white coloration and use of open space. The materials are all traditional as the red and cream are both native clays while the black is wild spinach (a plant). The jar is traditionally fired outdoors. It is signed on the bottom, “Lisa Holt & Harlan Reano 2020”.
