Anita Martinez was a granddaughter of Maria Martinez and a daughter of Santana & Adam Martinez.  She was the mother of noted potter Barbara Gonzales and grandmother of Cavan Gonzales.  This is a classic piece of her pottery with a sharp shoulder and sloping neck.  The jar is highly polished and painted with a feather design in two sections.  Separating the feathers are mesa, cloud, and lightning patterns. The jar was fired a glassy black and the rim was two-toned sienna.  The bottom of the jar is indented and signed, “Anita Martinez”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
