Claw, Stella Yazzie – Pitcher with Rug Weaving Implements (1998)
5"w x 5.5"h
This is a classic pitcher by Stella Claw. The piece is coil-built and has a round body and a handle. On the body of the piece are wool, a spinner, and a carding wool comb. They are all the implements necessary to make a Navajo rug! The piece was traditionally fired to create the coloration on the surface. After the firing, it was covered in pinon-pitch in the manner of traditional Navajo pottery. It is signed, “Stella Y. Claw”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
