Description

Elizabeth and Marcellus Medina are widely considered the most skilled potters working in Zia Pueblo today. Typically, Elizabeth creates a piece by hand, and then Marcellus paints it with highly intricate and detailed designs.  This small vase, another collaboration between the two, features a lovely shape and traditional designs in black and red on a buff backdrop. Reoccurring flower designs round the neck of the piece just below the rim, while one black and one red Zia bird are painted within large panels extending above and below the inflection. The birds aer surrounded by geometric and fine line designs, while the base of the piece is painted solid red. Originally from Jemez, Elizabeth has lived in Zia Pueblo since 1978 and learned the art of traditional pottery-making from her mother-in-law, Sofia Medina, while Marcellus is a self-taught painter. 6″ tall x 6″ wide.
