Cling, Alice – Tall Long Neck Water Jar

6"w x 8"h

$ 385.00

This is a striking large jar by Alice Cling.  It has a low, round shoulder and an elongated neck.  It is an elegant shape.  The jar is fully polished red and then 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 and seem to swirl across the surface.  The jar was covered in pinon pitch after the firing, a continuation of the traditional Navajo pottery when pinon pitch was used to make the pottery waterproof.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay.  Alice has won numerous awards for her pottery and been featured in books such as “Legacy of Generations.”
