Tafoya, Jennifer (Moquino) – Eagles and Osprey Lidded Bowl
Jennifer Tafoya is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures. This new jar is complex in shape and design. The jar is fully polished and the top section is fully designed. There are three different scenes with birds. The various birds are a bald eagle, Golden Eagle, and Osprey. Each bird is very intricately designed with the Bald and Golden Eagles in flight and the Osprey catching a fish. Check out the little details in the background with the aspen trees! Each section is separated by a different geometric pattern. The top of the bowl is recessed so the lid sits down into the piece. The lid is fully polished and etched with a cloud design. All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jennifer Tafoya, 2019”.
