Naranjo, Madeline – Water Jar with Butterflies
Madeline Naranjo creates beautifully carved and polished pottery. Each piece is coil built, stone polished and traditionally fired. This jar has a classic water jar shape with the wide shoulder and elongated neck. There are deeply carved butterflies as the design encircling the piece. The alternate between matte and polished surfaces. The remainder of the jar 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.
