Historic Ohkay Owingeh Storage Jar

Item #: 717
Origin: Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo (San Juan)
Date: 19th Century
Media: Clay
Dimensions: 11″ tall, 14″ diameter
Description: This large storage jar has an amazing golden patina to the surface.  The fire clouds are bold in their intensity and placement.  The surface has an undulating quality from the stone burnishing that catches the light in different ways lending layering and complexity to the form.  The transition from slip to no slip is mid-body at the widest point – this transition is only an echo of what it must have been when first made but the transition is clearly there.

Condition: The jar has been black lighted and there is no evidence of any restoration. There is one small chip on the rim as one can see.

Price: Sold
