This is a classic jar by Maximiliana “Anna” Martinez, who was a sister of Maria Martinez.   It is coil-built and stone polished.  The jar has a sharp shoulder and sloping sides.  It is painted with rain and cloud designs.  The wind designs are the little “hook” designs seen extending into the polished areas and is a design she used primarily in the 1920s.  The jar was fired to a silvery black coloration.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Anna”.
