Tafoya, Jennifer – Jar with Bluejays
Jennifer Tafoya is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures! This jar is a striking shape with a wide shoulder and short neck. The top of the jar is fully designed with four Bluejays. Note how each is etched into the clay in a different stage of flight! The way the wings and tail feathers extend up to the rim is fantastic! The shoulder of the jar is etched with cloud designs. The base has very tiny and intricate acorns! All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jennifer Tafoya”.
