Dominique Toya is known for her intricately carved pottery with sharply ridged melon swirls. She has created her distinctive style of pottery using native clay and micaceous clay slips for the surface. This jar is polished a deep red and it has a triangular opening. There are four sharply carved ribs that extend from the rim to the base. They are slipped with a copper color of mica. It is a striking contrast between the polished and matte surfaces. It is signed on the bottom, “Dominique Toya”. Dominique has won numerous awards for her pottery and continues to be one of the leading Jemez potters working today!
