Peynetsa, Jamie – Small Red and White Clay Duck Figure
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 strong attention to the detail of the painting as well as his inspiration from classic Zuni pottery. This is one of the smaller duck figures we have had from him. The body is slipped with a red clay while the head is white. The designs are then painted in black. The head of the duck has a fluted “feather” top. The body is painted with wing designs and the dots on the front are raised. It is signed by Jamie and his mother on the bottom.
