Moquino, Jennifer – Hornet Figure
Jennifer Moquino is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures! This past year she has begun making both insects as well as animals. This is one of her hornets. It is wonderfully detailed for the body of the piece. Note how she even captured the underside of the back end of the body! The wings are etched with more traditional Santa Clara style designs. All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. Jennifer continues to be one of the leading innovative potters working today!
