Patricio, Robert – Jar with Interlocking Stars
This jar by Robert Patricio utilizes classic Acoma designs. Robert is known for his classic forms and use of both traditional and pre-historic imagery. This jar is coil built and thin-walled. It has a classic water jar shape with a high shoulder and a short neck. The jar is painted with the classic interlocking star pattern. It is one of the images most associated with Acoma pottery and creates a beautiful flow across the surface of the vessel. Note the precision of the lines! It is exceptional in design! The black and white coloration gives the jar a very modern appearance. Robert is certainly one of the leading traditional Acoma potters working today which is evidenced by his stunning forms and complementary designs. The jar is signed on the bottom, “R. M. Patricio”.
