Cling, Alice – Jar with Kiva Step Rim
This jar by Alice Cling has a low wide shoulder and an elongated neck. The neck is caved with a step or mountain design on one side. The jar itself is highly polished and stunning with the variations in color from the traditional firing. The colors range from deep red to black. The piece was covered in pine-pitch after the firing, a continuation of the traditional Navajo pottery when pine 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.” The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.
