Patricio, Felisha- Lightning Design Jar
Felisha Patricio (b. 1997) is a 22-year-old daughter of noted potter Robert Patricio. This jar is coil built and thin-walled. It has a classic jar shape with a low shoulder and long neck. The jar is fully painted with the iconic “lightning” pattern. The design extends from the rim to near the base. It has a modernist appearance based on a very traditional design. This lightning pattern can be seen in the work of Lucy Lewis and Marie Z. Chino. The black is bee-weed (a plant). The jar is signed, “Felisha P.”. The last photo is one of Felisha with her father, Robert Patricio.
