Patricio, Georgia – Jar with Interlocking Butterflies
Georgia Patricio is a daughter of Lucy Juanico and a granddaughter of Joselita Ray and learned to make pottery from her mother. Each piece is coil-built and patined with wild spinach and clay slips. This jar has a classic Acoma form with a high shoulder and short neck. There are a series of interlocking butterflies as the design. The butterfly wings are white ellipses and they are surrounded by both black and red flowers. It is a creative design on this jar. They extend from the rim to near the base. It is a striking design that flows across the surface of the jar. It is signed on the bottom, “G. Patricio”.
