$ 175.00

Violet Huma is one of a group of potters from Second Mesa at Hopi who began making pottery in the 1960s and 70s.  The forms were often more traditional shapes, such as this jar.  It is fully polished on the inside and outside.  The jar has four panels of design.  There are cloud, rain, and bird wing patterns across the surface.  It is a tight and complicated design painted with bee-weed (black) and red clay slip.  The bowl was traditionally fired to create blushes on the surface.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “Violet Huma”.
