Brands:Naha, Tyra

Tyra Naha is a daughter of Rainy Naha.   She learned to make pottery from her mother and continues to make traditional style Hopi-Tewa pottery in the style of her grandmother, Helen “Feather Woman” Naha.  This jar is coil built and painted with native clay slips and bee-weed (black).  The designs are a series of tumbling parrots. They are each painted with different clay slips to create a striking coloration.  The rim and base are a checkerboard pattern.  The jar is traditionally fired and signed on the bottom with a feather and spider (Spider Clan ) and a “3” for being the Third Generation of the Naha family.
