Martinez, Santana & Adam – Gunmetal Fired Water Jar (1970s)
This is an exceptional fully polished jar by Santana and Adam Martinez. The piece has a classic San Ildefonso jar shape with a high shoulder and short neck. There is just a slight sharp ridge at the shoudler. The entire piece is fully polished. What makes it exceptional is the firing. The jar has full gunmetal coloration from the firing, giving it a very silvery appearance. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Santana + Adam”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. Definitely a classic piece!
