Namingha, Joshua – Brown Clay Fetish Bear (17 Years Old)
Joshua Namingha is a son of noted potters Les and Jocelyn Namingha. Over the past several years he has been making clay bears. Each bear is different and they are much in the style of Zuni bear fetishes. However, as they are clay, this bear has various slips and glazes to create the coloration. This bear has the appearance of very old fetish bears with a dark brown coloration. It has a medicine bundle on the back with turquoise and coral. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “JRN”.
