Moquino, Jennifer – Seed Jar with Chickadee and Western Tanager
3.25"w x 3.75"h
This is an intricately designed seed jar by Jennifer Moquino. The jar has two sections of design, each with a different type of bird. There is a Mountain Chickadee (black & white) on one side and a Western Tanager on the other. The birds are both realistically etched into the clay. Separating them are flowers, which are highlighted with additional clay slips. The top and the bottom are both etched with cloud and rain patterns. All the various colors are from natural clay slips. Jennifer is extraordinary in her use of realism on her pottery and capturing a moment in time.
