Sanchez, Desideria – Large Jar with Cloud and Wind Patterns (1920’s)
Desideria Montoya Sanchez was a sister of noted potter Maria Martinez. She was known for her traditional pottery and use of both classic and innovative designs. This tall jar is a shape that was used by both her and Maria during the 1920’s. It is a tall shaped jar with a high shoulder. The jar here is highly polished and has a cloud design painted around the neck and then additional rain and wind designs around the shoulder. The painted designs here are so bold that they give a very modernistic appearance to the jar. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Desideria”.
