Eusebia Toribio Shije is known for her traditional Zia pottery. This jar is coil-built and painted with native clay slips.  It is a small version of a storage jar shape.  There are two of her classic Zia birds (note the elongated neck).  Below the birds are tan polished cloud designs.  Separating the birds are large agave plants.  Above the plants are double-banded rainbow and cloud designs.  The base is also fully polished.  The piece was traditionally fired.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “Eusebia Shije”.
