Jennie Trammel is known by all collectors of contemporary pottery as one of the finest potters from Santa Clara Pueblo producing carved red vessels.  She was a perfectionist and her works clearly illustrate that. Unfortunately, she made fewer pottery items than any of the other daughters of Margaret Tafoya. She had a full-time job away from Santa Clara Pueblo and had little time for making pottery.  Interestingly, she was absolutely a phenomenal potter and produced the most beautiful carved wares of the twentieth century.

The surface was slipped with a deep red clay which was stone polished to perfection. The jar is signed.
