Cling, Alice – Tall Corn Husk Side Jar

Cling, Alice – Tall Corn Husk Side Jar

7"w x 8"h
$ 600.00
Availability: Out of stock

This a striking tall jar by Alice Cling.  Alice Cling is one of the great names in the revival of Navajo pottery in the 1980’s. This jar is coil built, stone polished around the neck and striated corn husk designs down the size.  This tall jar is a very traditional Navajo shape with the elongated shape. The design is very subtle but is the coloration of the firing which is so dynamic!  The colors on this jar swirl and range from black to a deep red.  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 waterproof.  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.”

Cling, Alice (b.1946)

alice clingAlice Cling

alice clingAlice Cling is renown for her mastery of form in contemporary Navajo pottery. She was certainly pivotal in the evolution of Navajo pottery from folk art to fine art since the 1990's. Her perfectly balanced pottery seems to hover on a narrow base and gracefully rise to amazing heights only to be accented with a wide shoulder. Many of her works often have an asymmetric flow in design beginning from the opening, that flows gracefully with the design to the base. Alice has won numerous awards for her pottery and has been featured in books such as "Legacy of Generations".  Alice uses traditional methods of pottery construction of coil, polish, open fire, and sap coating inside and out.  Each work has a beautiful rich red color with fire patterns that give the pot a very rich hand worked art dimension.  We are pleased to carry the work of Alice along with many other traditional Navajo potters.
