Moquino, Jennifer – Javalina Clay Figure
Jennifer Moquino is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures! Jennifer said this is her first attempt a javalina, which is one of those animals which we see a lot of here in the desert southwest! The head and body are fully polished and the head is realistically etched. The back has a series of mountain and lightning designs on one side and a feather pattern on the other. Ok. It’s the tail, which is polished, which is the charming part of this piece! All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. Jennifer continues to be one of the leading innovative potters working today!
