4.5"w x 2.5"h

$ 175.00

Jerry Sisneros learned to make pottery from his mother, Olaria Sisneros.  He was never prolific but created well polished and intricately painted pieces.  This wide jar has a sharp shoulder and a short sloping neck.  The jar is painted red-on-red with a very very complex avanyu (water serpent).  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.
