Holt, Lisa & Harlan Reano – Storage Jar with Rain Geometric Panels
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 storage jar is a striking shape with tall sides and a slight neck. The neck and the base are painted with wild spinach plant designs. Around the center of the jar are panels with varied rain designs. Each is different than the next creating a stunning appearance as the jar is turned. The jar is stunning complexity in both form and design. 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.
