Barbara & Joseph Cerno Southwest Indian Pottery Contemporary Acoma Pueblo signature

Barbara Hayah Cerno (b.1951) and Merle Joseph Martin Cerno (b.1947) are a husband and wife team who sign their pottery B. J. Cerno.  They make some of the largest contemporary Acoma pottery being produced today.  They also have made some of the smallest, such as this seed jar.  On large water jars, they often decorate with a parrot theme, but on small seed jars they generally use Mimbres designs.

 

This small seed jar is covered in Mimbres creatures.  It is signed B. J. Cerno and dated 12-84.  It appears to be in original condition.

 

Provenance: from the collection of Katherine H. Rust
