$ 250.00

This a striking jar by Alice Cling.  Alice Cling is one of the great names in the revival of Navajo pottery in the 1980s. This jar is coil built, stone polished around the neck and striated corn husk designs down the size.  The jar has a polished rim and the etched area has strong variations in color which range from deep black to brown.  The design is very subtle but is the coloration of the firing which is so dynamic!  The jar was covered in pine-pitch after the firing, a continuation of the traditional Navajo pottery when the pitch was used to make the pottery utilitarian.  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.”
