Large Jar

Created: 1993
Technique: Slip Paint

Barbara Cerno.  Acoma, 1951-
Jospeh Cerno.  Acoma, 1947-

Made by leading Acoma potters Barbara and Joe Cerno, this jar’s imagery features motifs pertaining to water, including clouds, rain and the wotsana´we water bird.  The Cernos are famous for their exceptionally bright, white slip produced without the use of an oxidizing kiln, a phenomenal technical achievement resulting from mastery of slip preparation and traditional firing.

Promised Gift of Gretchen and Nelson Grice.
