This is a very colorful 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 short neck. Around the body of the jar there are ZI birds underneath a rainbow with rainclouds. Along the neck, separating the rainbows are hummingbirds in flight. Note the use of various clay slips to create the coloration! Below the shoulder, 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 “Elizabeth Medina, Zia”.
