This is an exceptional lidded jar by Ray Tafoya.  The jar has a medallion on the lower side with a stylized bear.  Surrounding the bear are butterflies.  The neck has a feather pattern. The lid is a bear with a heart line.  There are additional clay colors of red, yellow, and blue, which accentuate the designs.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay with his hallmark, “White Mountain”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  Note how many of the geometric designs are similar to ones used today by his daughter, Jennifer Tafoya.
