$ 500.00

This is a very unusual Zia 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.  This jar has a  high shoulder and elongated neck.  One side of the neck is carved with kiva steps. The other side has a koshari clown dancer.  To one side is a hummingbird, and the other a turtle. The remainder of the jar has additional cloud and rain designs.  All the areas with color are stone polished.  The jar was traditionally fired and there is some color variation on the surface from the smoke. The jar signed on the bottom, “Elizabeth Medina, Zia”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
