Tafoya, Jennifer – Seedpot with Horses and Butterflies
Jennifer Tafoya is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures! This is a fully designed seedpot. The top has three butterflies etched into the clay and highlighted with additional clay slips. They are surrounded by flowers. Around the side of the piece, there are three horses; appaloosa, paint, and quarter horse. They are realistically depicted with great detail to the fur. Take a look “behind” the horses. Jennifer has etched just a bit deeper behind the mountains and has layered the clouds! The highly polished surface is a perfect background to this intricate jar. All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jennifer Tafoya”.
