Zia Large Polychrome Storage Jar with 10 Birds by Elizabeth Medina
Elizabeth is known for making the large storage jars for which Zia potters have long been known. She was taught by her mother-in-law, Sofia Medina a highly respected Zia potter. Elizabeth has created a storage jar form that is near perfect and both Elizabeth and her husband Marcellus are great painters. These talents are evident in this beautiful jar with 10 Zia birds some in flight. The slips are all natural including red and orange to yield a 4-color palette; all set against a creamy white slip. A lovely example of Elizabeth's work at her classic best. And for a jar this size by a potter of Elizabeth's stature, her prices are very reasonable.
