This jar is by Theresa Salvador (b. 1964). She began making pottery around 1987 with her sister, Vivian Seymour. Each piece is coil built and painted with natural clay slips. This jar is a classic Acoma style olla, with a high shoulder and a slight neck. The design is a series of three parrots encircling the jar. Around the parrots are flowers and plants and additional flowers around the neck of the jar. There are rainbow patterns above the birds. The jar is signed on the bottom, “T. Sal”.
