Availability: Out of stock

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 jar is a classic shape with a wide shoulder and turned out rim.  Interestingly, Debbie said that she polished the red on this piece around the neck and in the design. The result is a striking appearance and a contrast of the painted and polished surface.  The design in black is painted with bee-weed (a plant).  It is a migration or bird wing pattern.  The top part has the stylized bird wings as the migration pattern and below are the bird tails and the shadows of the wings.  It is a striking piece in shape and design.  The jar is traditionally fired with blushes across the surface of the piece.   It is signed on the bottom with her name and a pipe for his “Tobacco Clan”.
