Moquino, Jennifer – Lidded Jar with Blue Bird, Chickadee and Kinglet Birds
4"w x 7.25"h (w/ Lid)
This is and intricately designed jar by Jennifer Moquino. The jar has three sections of design, each with a different type of bird. There are two West Blue Birds, then a chickadee and finally the golden crown kinglet. Each of the birds is etched and painted with design. However, it’s not just the birds which are so extraordinary, but note the surrounding plants. The blooming trees and and the little berries, each etched and highlighted with natural clay slips! There are designs separating the various sections with rain, cloud and plant designs. The lid is also carved and inset with a single piece of coral on each side. All the colors are from natural clay slips. Jennifer is extraordinary in her use of realism on her pottery and capturing a moment in time.
