Clashin, Debbie – Dragonfly Plate
Debbie Clashin has become one of the exciting leaders in Hopi-Tewa pottery over the past several years. She is known for her large-sized traditional fired vessels. This plate is fully polished. It is painted on the front with a larger dragonfly, several small dragonflies and a series of “dragonfly wings” extending across the surface. It is a wonderful use of design and the space. The plate is painted with bee-weed and a red clay slip and traditionally fired. There are blushes across the surface of the plate. It is signed on the back with her name and a pipe for his “Tobacco Clan”.
