Peynetsa, Jamie – Duck Red Clay Figure with Rain Designs
Jamie Peynetsa is the son of noted potters Anderson and Avelia Peynetsa. Avelia, his mother, coil builds the clay duck and Jamie paints the design. He has a strong attention to the detail of the painting as well as his inspiration from classic Zuni pottery. This duck figure is a charming piece. The painted designs on the side are classic Zuni style lighting and water designs. Note how well Jamie paints to match design and form. The red clay for the piece has just a bit of mica. The head is painted black with white eyes and white on the forehead. It is signed by Jamie and his mother on the bottom.
