Acoma Pueblo Native American Indian Pottery Fluted Jar - Melissa C. Antonio
Artist: Melissa C. Antonio (Acoma Pueblo)
Dimensions: 7 1/4" tall X 5" Wide
Description: Hand coiled Jar with Geometric designs by Melissa C. Antonio of Acoma Pueblo. It has a swirling band of orange painted squares. It has a fluted rim as well! The painting on this jar is almost unbelievable. The fact that this is done by hand and the precision is truly amazing! Melissa paints with a yucca brush and all of her pottery is painted with all natural materials made from minerals and plants. Melissa is the daughter in law of Mildred Antonio and the daughter of Gilbert & Lillie Antonio. Please note that Melissa does both slip cast pottery and hand coiled. We only carry her hand coiled pieces which are more expensive due to the additional work involved.
