$ 2,000.00

This is a classic jar by Maria Martinez.  It was made by Maria Martinez and painted by her daughter-in-law Santana Martinez (the wife of Adam Martinez, Maria’s son).  It is very highly polished and has a glassy surface.  The design is a feather pattern which encircles the shoulder of the jar.  Around the shoulder is a cloud pattern.  The shape of the bowl has a wide shoulder and a sloping neck. The feathers are painted very tightly from the rim to the neck.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Maria + Santana”.  The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
