Martinez, Santana & Adam – Gunmetal Jar with Feather Designs (1970’s)
This is an exceptionally fired gunmetal jar by Santana and Adam Martinez. Adam was the youngest son of Maria Martinez, and Santana (his wife) painted Maria’s pottery in the 1940-50s. The entire surface of this piece is fully polished. The feather design was then painted around the top shoulder of the jar. The jar was traditionally fired and has an amazing gunmetal 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!
