June Pino Cheromiah is a granddaughter of Mary Antonio and a daughter of James Pino and Zelda Chaplin Pino. She learned to make pottery from Rachel Concho, Paul Lucario, Mildred Antonio, and Barbara & Joseph Cerno. Each piece is coil-built from native clay and painted with bee-weed and clay slips. This jar has a high shoulder and a short neck. The jar is painted with thin lines. The lines create a series of stars and rain patterns. It is a complex and fluid design. It is signed on the bottom, “June Pino”.
