Patricio, Georgia – Wedding Vase with Rainbow and Sunrise Designs
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 wedding vase is painted with a complex pattern. On the front and back are sunrise patterns under the rainbow painted with fine-lines. On the sides are the sunsets. Around the shoulder is a rainbow tying the sunrise and sunsets together. The wedding vase has a twisted handle, which is always more difficult to create. The black-and-white coloration gives the vase a very modernist appearance. It is signed on the bottom, “G. Patricio”.
