Acoma Polychrome Parrot Jar by Marie Z. Chino new

This masterpiece-level Acoma jar by matriarchal potter Marie Zieu Chino (1906-1982) dates to the 1960s, the peak of the 20th century Acoma pottery revival. Along with her contemporaries Jessie Garcia and Lucy M. Lewis, Chino revived Tularosa and Mimbres-influenced traditional pottery at Acoma. Marie had five daughters who became potters, most notably Grace Chino and Rose Chino Garcia, and she nurtured both her children and grandchildren’s pottery careers.

This jar features the traditional Acoma design of the parrot. The parrot is accentuated by a floral design, with four flowers framing the jar’s elegant neck. The design is extremely well-executed and fits the form of the jar nicely. The jar is thinly-molded and completely traditionally made, including pit-firing. The jar is above average in size, measuring 10 ½” height and 10 ¾” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition. This jar is exemplary of Marie Chino’s skill as a potter, and would be an excellent companion to another superb Marie Chino jar, P4355:
