The “interlocking” or “tumbling” parrots is a design originated by Rainy Naha. This piece has a very round shoulder and slight neck.  This shape allows both the top and bottom parrots to be easily seen. The bowl is fully polished with a white clay slip and then there are five sections of interlocking birds for a total of ten.  Each bird is painted with various Hopi-Tewa designs and then additional clay slips for the color.  Note the variety of designs in the birds with small hatchwork patterns and even four directional color sets.  Rainy uses bee-weed (black) and natural clay slips for her colors. The jar is traditionally fired.  Rainy learned to make pottery from her mother, Helen “Featherwoman” Naha.  The bowl is signed on the bottom with the feather hallmark and “Rainy”.  Rainy has won numerous awards for her pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Market and her work continues to be a creative inspiration in Hopi-Tewa pottery.
