Medina, Elizabeth & Marcellus – Lidded Jar with Birds and Flowers
Elizabeth Medina is known for her traditional style of Zia pottery. Each piece is coil built, painted with native clays and native fired. This jar is made by Elizabeth and intricately painted by her husband, Marcellus Medina. Marcellus is certainly at his best when he is reviving historic Zia styles. The jar has a Zia bird on each side. Each bird has a red polished area. They are separated by large flower designs. The base of the jar is polished red. The jar has a lid with a small bear. It is painted with a bird and flowers on a red polished flat surface. The jar is signed on the side “Elizabeth + Marcellus Medina, Zia”.
