Tafoya, Jennifer – Green Jar with Salmon
Jennifer Moquino is known for her clay vessels along with her amazing animal figures! This jar is fully polished green. The designs of the salmon and fish are etched out of the top surface of the clay. Additional designs are then etched into the body of the fish and highlighted with clay slips. The neck of the jar has water and cloud designs. All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. Jennifer continues to be one of the leading innovative potters working today! This is an earlier piece of her pottery and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
