Sisneros, Jerry – Red Bowl with Clouds and Lightning
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 is painted red-on-red with an intricate cloud, rain, and lightning design. This imagery extends downward while there is a mountain design extending upward in the negative space. 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.
