Cling, Alice – 9″ Tall Jar with Square Neck

6"w x 9"h

$ 575.00

This tall jar by Alice Cling has her classic shape with the high shoulder.  The neck is square in contrast to the rounded shoulder.  The jar has been vertically polished so you can see the stone marks in the polished surface.  The jar is then traditionally fired to create the coloration.  Note how the fireclouds swirl around the jar creating areas of dark black to deep red.  The jar was covered in pinon-pitch after the firing, a continuation of the traditional Navajo pottery when pitch was used to make the pottery waterproof.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Alice Cling”.  Alice has won numerous awards for her pottery and been featured in books such as “Legacy of Generations.”
