Naranjo, Teresita – Small Fully Carved Jar with Feathers and Avanyu (1970’s)
Teresita Naranjo was a daughter of Christina Naranjo and know for her deeply carved pottery. This jar is fully carved with a feather pattern around the neck and water serpent around the body of the piece. It is very much like some of her larger pieces with complex designs. Note how deeply it is carved and the intricate flow of design on the body of the avanyu. It is traditionally fired black and signed on the bottom in the clay, “Teresita Naranjo”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
