One side of the jar has three different large horned lizards as the design.  Check out the amazing detail in the faces and the scales!  The background behind them is a micaceous clay slip to have the appearance of sand.  The opposite side has five horned lizards.  There are three different types.  The level of realism on each of the lizards is amazing.  It is almost as if you could pick them up!  Surrounding these areas are cloud and rain designs.  There is also a single band of inset turquoise hei-shi beads.  All the colors are all from natural clay slips..  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.  Jennifer continues to be one of the leading innovative potters working today!
