$ 1,400.00

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 tightly painted feather pattern encircling the jar.  It was fired to a dark black coloration.  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.
