4.25"w x 5"h

$ 250.00

This jar by Alice Cling has a deep coloration from the firing.  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 base, and has striated corn husk designs around the neck.  This jar is a classic shape with a low shoulder and long neck.  The surface is very textural in feeling but is the coloration of the firing which is so dynamic!  The colors on this jar swirl and range from black to red to dark brown.  The jar was covered in pinon-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 has been featured in books such as “Legacy of Generations.”
