Peters, Franklin – Jar with Star & Rain Designs
This is detailed water jar by Franklin Peters. He is known for his thin-walled pottery and use of traditional Acoma imagery on his pottery. The jar is coil built with native clay and painted with native slips. The design has a star pattern repeated four times. There is a fine line rain pattern around the star and there are small plant designs near the rim. The thin lines are a delicate complement to the thin walls. The rim of the jar has a painted “spirit line”, which is often seen on Acoma pottery. The jar is signed on the bottom.
