Victorino, Sandra – Seed Jar with Swirling Rain and Snow Designs
Sandra Victorino is a niece of noted potter Dorothy Torivio. Sandra has her own unique style of “op-art”, where the patterns start small, then get larger and then smaller again on the vessel. These pieces reflect the variety and intricacy of her pottery designs. This jar has the white clay painted with the black bee-weed (a plant). The jar has a checkerboard snow pattern and a fine-line rain pattern. They are alternating around the jar as they swirl down from the rim to the base. The intricacy of the designs and the use of the op-art imagery adds to the sophistication of the jar! The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay.
