Howato, Ted Tahbo – Large Jar with Eagle Tail Designs
Ted Tahbo Howato is the youngest son of Diana Tahbo and great-great-grandson of Grace Chapella. This large jar is coil built and painted with bee-weed and red clay slips. The jar is painted with eagle trial and bird wing patterns which extend downward from the rim. It was traditionally fired which created the blushes on the surface. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Ted T Howato” and a pipe, as he is “Tobacco Clan”.
