$ 165.00

Jerry Sisneros learned to make pottery from his mother, Olaria Sisneros.  He was never prolific but created well polished and intricately painted pieces.  This jar has a round shoulder and an elongated neck. The jar has a painted red-on-red, very complex avanyu (water serpent).  There are plant and rain designs around the neck.  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.
