Melissa Concho Antonio created this beautifully executed jar, which she titled “Four Seasons”. It measure 6 by 6.5 inches and is $800. What folks might not know about this type of work is the vessel is first coated with white clay and when painting over it, you cannot simply ‘erase’ a mistake as the mineral paint will bleed through the white clay applied over it and if you sand it off you cannot refinish the surface to blend in with the surrounding area….so you have one and only one opportunity to get it right.

Two miniature seed pots by Diane Lewis-Garcia. The polychrome pot with the rainbird is 2.75 by .75 inches, while the one with the corn kernel motifs and a dragonfly is 1/16 inch larger in both directions Each is $105 and both are in Tucson.
Many of the large, old canteens were meant to rest differently than this modern one. Specifically the surface with the large unadorned medallion would have been flat and rested on the ground. Despite the change in orientation of the vessel the potter, Beverly Garcia, remained with the traditional design layout. 6 by 6 inches. $150. (TUCSON)
