Andrew Harvier and Judy Harvier work together under the name “Nana Kaa”, which means Aspen Leaves in Tewa. Judy is a sister of noted potter Debra Duwyenie. This is a larger piece of their pottery. It is thin-walled and was made and polished by Judy. The jar has a cylinder shape with tall sides. There is a corn plant etched on one side. Note how it is etched in various layers and has a rain design in the matte area. The opposite side has a Corn Maiden figure with a single inset piece of turquoise. The large stone is inset into the clay. It was traditionally fired a deep red coloration. The piece is from the 1990s and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed, “Nana Kaa” on the bottom.
