Harrison Jim learned to make pottery from his mother-in-law Joy “Frogwoman” Navasie. He often collaborated with Marianne Navasie (one of Joy’s daughters) on his pottery. This jar was made by Mariane and painted by Harrison Jim. The jar has a spiraling stylized bird design. It was painted with bee-weed (black) and a red clay slip. The jar was traditionally fired to create the blushes on the surface. It is signed on the bottom with Marianne’s frog and tadpole hallmark along with “HJ”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
