Peynetsa, Jamie – Jar with Rain & Lightning Designs
Jamie Peynetsa is the son of noted potters Anderson and Avelia Peynetsa. Avelia, his mother, coil builds the clay vessel. 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 jar is very tightly painted with rain designs above the shoulder. The thin lines are even and add complexity to the piece. The sides of the jar are boldly painted with lightning patterns. Note how well Jamie paints to match design and form. It is signed by Jamie and his mother on the bottom. At only 20 years old, he certainly has a great future in pottery!
