Medina, Elizabeth – Jar with Zia Birds, Rainbows, and Bear Lid
This is a classic Zia water jar 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. The jar has sections with large birds underneath a rainbow. The rainbow is painted with fine-lines and larger clouds. Separating the larger birds are smaller ones with flowers. Each bird is different in design and coloration. The lid has a base polished red and there is a bear on top with a bird and flower as the design. The jar signed on the side “Elizabeth Medina, Zia”.
