Cling, Alice – Jar with Four Section Design

4.25"w x 5.75"h

$ 280.00

This is the first time we have had this style from Alice Cling.  The jar is one of her tall shoulder pieces.  Around the side there are four large black areas in contrast to the deep red clay.  It creates a striking appearance.  The jar is fired outdoors.  The jar has a deep color from the smoke and fire.   The colors on this piece vary from black to a deep red.  The jar was covered in pine-pitch after the firing, a continuation of the traditional Navajo pottery when pitch was used to make the pottery waterproof. Alice has won numerous awards for her pottery and been featured in books such as “Legacy of Generations.”
