Tafoya, Jennifer Moquino – Turtle with Dragonflies

2.5" long

$ 280.00

Jennifer Moquino is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures. This turtle is fired black.  It is fully polished on its back.  There is a feather pattern along with rain clouds, lighting, and dragonflies.  Note how the design spirals out from the center of the piece with a bear paw in the center and then a bird head flowing into the dragonflies and then finally the lighting.  For a small piece, it is wonderfully complex.  All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips.  Jennifer continues to be one of the leading innovative potters working today!
