Description: Hand coiled "Hunter" Jar by famed potter Robert Tenorio. Robert told us he got this design from a jar in the Dick Howard collection. It has 3 different hunter scenes! One shows the hunter grabbing the deer by the horns. Another shows the hunter with his hands around the throat of a deer and the final scene shows a hunter luring the deer near the river where the hunter lives so he can kill it close to home and doesn't have to drag it through the woods. There is also a Turkey depicted on the final side. An incredible piece! All of Robert's jars have a hand with a circular design on the inside indicating that it's hand coiled. His signature hallmark is the 7 dipper stars which signifies his last name (7 letters). Fired outdoors with natural pigments by living treasure potter Robert Tenorio.
