Namingha, Les – “Awatovi Clouds” Contemporary Jar

7"w x 4"h

$ 1,400.00

This is a stylized jar by Les Namingha.  The piece has a wide shoulder and a sloping neck.  The top is painted with cloud spirals extending down from the rim to the shoulder.  The rim of the bowl is slipped with a mica clay and the same with the bottom. The coppery color of the mica is a strong contrast to the black and white of the top of the jar.  The style reminds one of the Awatovi black-and-white pottery from near Hopi.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Les Namingha  2020”.
