Naranjo, Johnathan – Wide Shoulder Jar with Lightning Design and Mesa Neck

4.5"w x 3"h

$ 450.00

This is a wide shoulder jar by Johnathan Naranjo.  He creates a unique style of sgraffito and etching on his pottery.  The jar is fully polished and the neck is left matte to represent a mesa.  The body of the jar is highly polished and etched with lightning and cloud geometrics.  The lighter red areas are where Johnathan has lightly etched away the polished surface, but not deep enough to reveal the tan clay coloration.  It is a delicate process but one that is distinctive to his pottery style.  The jar was fired a brown coloration and there are variations of brown across the surface. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Johnathan Naranjo”.  Johnathan is definitely one of the young potters to watch!
