Navasie, Charles – Bowl with Eagle Tails (1990s)
Charles Navasie is a grandson of noted potter Joy “Frogwoman” Navasie and the son of Loretta Navasie. This jar is thin-walled and has a round shoulder and a flat top. It is painted with bee-weed and a deep red clay slip. The bowl has four sections of eagle tails extending over the shoulder. They are separated by rain designs. The piece is tightly painted and the imagery perfectly matches the shape of the jar. It was traditionally fired. It is signed on the bottom with his stylized frog hallmark and “C. Navasie”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
