$ 275.00

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 and stone polished.  This jar is a classic shape with a round shoulder and elongated neck.  Around the shoulder is a raised band with an incised rain design. The jar was traditionally fired outdoors and has strong colorations from black to red on the surface.  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 has been featured in books such as “Legacy of Generations.”
