Hand coiled, and painted with natural pigments, this is one of my favorite patterns that Paula paints. She calls it her “basket weave” design, and it reminds me of op-art. An eye dazzler, to be sure, the painting is so precise and intricate, it is outstanding. Paula started with this one particular Acoma design component, and then repeated it over and over covering the entire surface of the jar. Varying sizes of the pattern fit the shape masterfully.
