Paquin, Gladys – Large Water Jar with Rainbows and Plants
Gladys Paquin is one of the revivalist potters of Laguna Pueblo. Each piece is coil built, painted with bee-weed (black) and native clay slips, and traditionally fired. This large jar is one of her most classic designs. There are a series of interlocking rainbows and plant designs. There are additional plant designs around the neck of the jar and clouds near the base. The rim has a painted spirit line as part of the design. It is a complex and very traditional jar in shape and design. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Gladys Sratyu’we Paquin”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
