Naranjo, Geri – Red Seed Jar with Feathers and Avanyu
2.25"w x 1.75"h
WOW! This is a very intricate seed jar by Geri Naranjo. The piece is coil built and has a wide shoulder and sloping sides. The entire surface is fully polished. The piece has an incised avanyu around the shoulder. Above the avanyu are very tightly etched feathers. Above the feathers are cloud, rain, and lightning designs. It is a complex and fully designed piece with precision detail. Geri makes very few red pieces but the detail and coloration stands out. The piece was traditionally fired. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Geri Naranjo”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
