This tall vessel by Anita Fields is entitled, “Sky Jar”.  The piece is coil built and painted with textured designs on the surface. The inside of the rim is a gold luster.  Anita said of this piece:

” The imagery on this jar is telling our story.  On the top is how we came from stars.  For Osage people, everything is followed by earth, sky, and water.  Every system we have is representing things from earth and sky.  Our creation story tells that we come from the stars.  It’s about us telling our own stories.  What I do with the clay.”

It is a striking complement of her various designs with the clouds and stars a textured background.  The white is just a subtle relief on the surface of the black. It is signed on the bottom, “Anita Fields”  

“I have a choice…There is a time for each of us to step up and be apart of the culture.”  Anita recognizes there is a powerful connection that is made for her through cultural teachings.  [Her] hand formed ceramic works led to references found in the Osage genesis narratives.”  Anita Fields, Fluent Generations
