$ 2,100.00

Karen Abeita is known for her traditional and innovative Hopi-Tewa pottery.  This large, wide bowl is painted with bee-weed (black) and a red clay slip and then traditionally fired.  Karen is known for her very intricately painted pottery. The jar is stunning with a very wide shape and a flat top surface.  There are a series of pottery shards, which are interconnected on the surface.  Each of the shards has a different Hopi-Tewa design. There are lightly etched “edges” to each of the shards.   The jar was traditionally fired to create the blushes.  It is signed on the bottom in bee-weed, “Karen Abeita”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
