Barbara Johnson was a daughter of noted Maricopa potter Mabel Sunn. This jar is a classic shape for Maricopa pottery with the low shoulder and elongated neck.  The entire piece is fully polished.  The black designs are derived from a mixture of mesquite sap and cactus spines.  The imagery is a cloud and mountain pattern.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “B. J”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
