$ 575.00

Rainy Naha learned to make pottery from her mother, Helen “Featherwoman” Naha.  Rainy continues is a similar style using a white clay slip as the foundation for her work.  This jar is one of her tall forms with hummingbirds as the design.  Each pair of hummingbirds are separated by a corn plant design in the center and a rain design on the rim.  Each bird has a variety of designs derived from classic Hopi pottery. Rainy uses natural clay slips (bee-weed for the black) and white kaolin clay.  Each of her pieces is also traditionally fired which gives the white a very pearlescent appearance.  It is signed on the bottom with a feather and “Rainy”.
