Les Namingha has, over the years, created exciting variations in his pottery with new painting and technical styles. This jar is entitled, “Neo-Jar”. It has a round body and an elongated neck. The neck has ovals in flower petal patterns. Around the sides are large, glassy-colored areas that are red, blue, and black. There are Hopi “migration” and field designs. The jar also has a textural feel which complements the smooth, glassy areas. It is amazing how many colors he can use on a piece and have such dynamic results! The piece is signed on the bottom, “Les Namingha”.
