Naranjo, Madeline – Clouds and Corn Jar
Madeline Naranjo creates beautifully carved and polished pottery. Each piece is coil built, stone polished and traditionally fired. This jar has tall sides and carved in four sections. The design is clouds (matte) over the corn (polished). The carving is deep and the remainder of the piece is fully polished. The contrast of the matte and polished surfaces works perfectly. Madeline’s matte areas are sanded and perfectly smooth so that there are no indentations or areas where the matte might make a shadow. Her designs are always innovative and beautifully executed. The jar is signed on the bottom.
