This is a very intricately painted Zia jar with a lid by Elizabeth Medina.  She is known for her traditional style of Zia pottery.  Each piece is coil built, painted with native clays, and native-fired.  This jar has a round shoulder and a short neck.  There are clouds swirling down from the neck of the jar.  In the center of the swirl is a bird on each side. Separating the birds are two more roadrunners and flowers.  The jar is colorful and highly detailed.  Near the base, the jar is slipped red.  The top of the jar has a lid with a red polished base and a bear on top with a bird and flower as the design.  The jar signed on the side is “Elizabeth Medina, Zia”.
