Peynetsa, Ian – Jar with Rain Birds (1994)
This jar by Ian Peynetsa (b. 1977) is from 1994 when he was 17 years old. It is a more classic style of Zuni design with the Zuni rainbirds and the fine-line rain deigns. It is an interesting combination of these classic designs with the vertically polished white slip to enhance the designs. The jar won a 2nd place at the 1994 Zuni High School Art show. It is signed, “Ian Peynetsa”. While he no longer makes pottery, it is a striking example of creative student art! It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
