Sisneros, Jerry – Red Bowl with Avanyu
Jerry Sisneros learned to make pottery from his mother, Olaria Sisneros. He was never prolific but created well polished and intricately painted pieces. This bowl has tall sides and it is fully polished and painted. The jar has a painted red-on-red, very complex avanyu (water serpent). Note the clouds around the rim. It is a striking combination of design and color. The jar is signed on the bottom, “JMS”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
