Sahmie, Jean – Jar with Migration Pattern

Jean Sahmie is a daughter of noted potter Priscilla Nampeyo and a descendant of Nampeyo of Hano. This jar has a wide shoulder and a short neck.  The piece is painted with the classic migration pattern.  There are seven bird wings above and below the shoulder.  Note the thin lines making up the pattern!  The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “J Sahme”.   While Jean no longer makes pottery, there is wonderful creativity in each of her pieces!
