Pot #11

This is the first Jenny Mendes piece I bought...pre 2004, I think. Just like the Friday's piece, it is a pinch pot made of Terra Cotta. It's measurements are 1.75 x 3 x 3". It is glazed only on the inside...with an opaque white glaze. The lip is detail with black dashes and hatched dashes. At the bottom are two black birds and a vine. All details are sgrafitto-ed into the black slip or glaze. Like Friday's piece, her potters mark is 'jM', with a horizontal slash through the top of the 'j'. Now that I look at it, the image might be upside down. I dunno, you decide. Look for Sunday's pot late in the day...
