Description

Juanita Fragua, a Jemez potter now in her 80s who has been creating traditional Pueblo pottery for decades, created this lovely wedding vase, featuring a buff, polished backdrop and hand painted designs in red and black.  The handmade vase is not only symmetrical, but features lovely added details, such as the step rim openings and twisted handle.  It is painted with various traditional designs, including corn stalks, geometric patterns, arrows/lightning, fine lines, which often represent rain, and step patterns.  The wedding vase is a well-recognized symbol in many Native American cultures, with the spouts representing the individuals to be married, and then handle, the bond joining them.  Back of the piece is left mostly unpainted. 7 1/2″ tall x 4 5/8″ wide.
