Peynetsa, Jamie & Avelia Anderson – Large Seedpot with Raised Lizard & Dragonflies
Jamie Peynetsa is the son of noted potters Anderson Pyenetsa and Avelia Anderson. Avelia, his mother, coil builds the clay vessel. Jamie paints the design. He has strong attention to the detail of the painting as well as his inspiration from classic Zuni pottery. This is a large seedpot that is polished red. There is a raised lizard on one side and the tail swirls around the piece. There are two large painted dragonflies. The white clay dots on the back of the lizard and the the dragonflies are raised so they have a texture. The eyes of the lizard are painted white. Note how well Jamie paints to match design and form. It is signed, “Avelia Anderson, J. Peynetsa”.
