This water jar by Debbie Clashin is painted with a stylized bird design.  She is a cousin of noted potter Mark Tahbo and a descendant of Grace Chapella.  Debbie has quickly become well known for her large-sized traditional Hopi-Tewa pottery. The jar has a sloping shoulder and a slightly turned out rim from the neck.  The neck of the jar is slipped with red clay.  The birds are painted with bee-weed (black) and highlighted with an orange-colored clay.  The heads of the birds gracefully turn in while the tail feathers extend backward.  The jar is painted with bee-weed and natural clay slips.  It was traditionally fired with blushes across the surface of the jar.   It is signed on the bottom with her name and a pipe for his “Tobacco Clan”.
