Victorino, Sandra – Snow & Rain Design Seed Jar
4.75"w x 4.5"h
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) and a red clay slip. The jar has a checkerboard snow pattern swirling down from the rim. There is also a red lightning pattern and a very fine-line painted rain design. The imagery starts small at the neck and then gets larger and then small again at the base. The intricacy of the designs and the use of the op-art imagery adds to the sophistication of the jar! Sandra creates a beautiful sense of balance between the form and design.
