Namingha, Jocelyn Quam – Bowl with Corn and Cloud Designs (1997)
Jocelyn Quam Namingha is the wife of noted potter Les Namingha. This bowl is coil-built, stone polished, and painted with bee-weed (black) and polished red clay areas. The bowl was traditionally fired, which created the blushes on the surface. It is thin-walled and there are clouds and corn designed painted onto the surface. It is a varied design that changes as the bowl is turned. It is signed on the bottom, “Jocelyn Quam Namingha”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
